An on-line tool developed by COMPAS, the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society, with funding from The Legal Education Foundation, has won a Community Integration Award. The tool helps NGO advice providers and local authorities to assess the eligibility of destitute migrant children and parents for local authority support.

The tool was launched in January, after a complex research and design process, and is already well used by NGOs, local authorities and migrants themselves (in some cases as advised by NGOs). The tool has been widely promoted, including via a link from the Citizens Advice site.

The tool is available to view at http://migrantfamilies.nrpfnetwork.org.uk
