Our Serviceshand

Fortnightly Clinics

We offer fortnightly one-on-one advice sessions at the Hobart Community Legal Centre for people of refugee background, humanitarian entrants and people seeking asylum with questions regarding their migration and visa status.

These one-on-one advice sessions provide the opportunity to sit down with one of our volunteer lawyers or migration agents and have a confidential discussion with us about how we may be able to assist you.

Our advice sessions are run on a fortnightly basis. Appointments for our sessions are necessary, and can be arranged through Red Cross Tasmania, CatholicCare Tasmania and Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania (MRC). If you have a contact at one of these services, please ask them about arranging a time to receive some advice from the Tasmanian Refugee Legal Service. If you have not yet made contact with Red Cross, CatholicCare or MRC, we strongly recommend you do so as these oragnisations can act as a first point of call for providing support to refugees in Tasmania. Their contact details are as follows:
