Mobile Legal Clinics

Mobile legal clinics may be appropriate if you are unable to open an office in an area where there are many refugees, or in remote areas. Such outreach should aim to strengthen community relations, and can result in greater awareness among refugee populations, both of their rights and how to assert them, and of the services you offer.

The following downloadable resources are based on Asylum Access Tanzania’s experience in planning and implementing mobile legal clinics. The template concept note contains strategic planning guidance; outlines a community-based approach, and highlights training needs and safety concerns among other considerations. It looks at integration of the mobile clinics with existing legal services.

The schedule suggests how to structure outreach days and monthly plans, and the budget highlights line items to be included when planning for this type of community outreach.
