Migrant Destitution Fund
The Manchester Homeless Partnership (MHP) Destitute Migrants' Relief Fund provides a small crisis grant of up to £80 per month to destitute migrants who are subject to immigration controls and have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) - i.e. are unable to work to earn their own income and are not eligible for support from state benefits or the asylum system.

As the aim of the Fund is to support well-being and fulfillment as well as meet basic needs, maintaining the dignity of applicants is essential. For this reason, the Fund does not ask for receipts or stipulate how the grant should be spent.

How to apply
Applications are made through one of the supporting organisations, including:
● City of Sanctuary Manchester
● Grow together Levenshulme
● Mustard Tree
● Red Cross
● Refugee Action
Refugee Integration Loan
Refugees or people with humanitarian protection may also be eligible for an integration loan.

This has to be paid back but it is an interest-free loan. The smallest amount you can borrow is £100.

An integration loan can help cover the cost of the essential items needed to start a new life, for example a rent deposit or rent, work clothes or household items.
Claims are decided by the Home Office.
