phf_logo_rgbThis study will explore the role played by voluntary sector organisations providing  services such as advice and material support to migrant children and families who are destitute. It will seek to explain one of the findings of a recent study conducted by COMPAS on the responses of local authorities to destitute children and their families, which found that voluntary sector organisations found this area of work particularly challenging. The study will seek to identify the causes of those challenges, and how those challenges could be addressed.
