Destitute children unlawfully denied support by local councils

 

Local councils are unlawfully denying destitute children support because their parents’ immigration status is under suspicion. Families whose immigration status becomes insecure can quickly become destitute because they lose their right to work and access benefits. Such families who have dependent children can seek support under section 17 of the 1989 Children Act, which states that local councils have a duty to provide cash or accommodation to ensure a child’s immediate needs are met. Hundreds of these families have been unlawfully denied this support since 2010 because local authorities have focused on the parents’ immigration background.
