Migration Services in Wales Project Updates

This month we have published our Legal and Policy Briefing on Single adult migrants: Destitution, safeguarding and services under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.

Don’t forget that the Migration Services in Wales project also have a dedicated ‘Migration Enquiries Service‘, through which we can provide information on migration-related law, policy and practice, and help to signpost enquirers to other relevant sources of information (such as research, primary legislation or policy guidance).

Legal and Policy Briefings 

This month we published the sixth in our series of Legal and Policy Briefings: ‘Single adult migrants: Destitution, safeguarding and services under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014‘.

This briefing provides information on the duties of local authority social services departments in Wales to single adults under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, with a focus on safeguarding and destitution support for those whose immigration status prohibits them from accessing welfare benefits; and alternative support to destitute single adult migrants who are not eligible for local authority support and services, or other forms of statutory accommodation and financial support.

Migration Enquiries Service

Last year we launched the Migration Enquiry Service. This service aims to assist individuals and organisations in Wales with migration-related enquiries through the provision of information on law, policy and practice, and through signposting to other relevant sources of information (such as research, primary legislation or policy guidance).

If you have an enquiry regarding migration law and policy, you can email this to: enquiries@migration.wales
