Outreaches are done to create community awareness and empowerment. Their aim is to sensitise clients about the law, their rights and how to claim them. The other element is to make sure that individuals are knowledgeable of the law so that they do not break it.
This in turn helps decongests the prisons and the courts. Outreaches are also a means of identifying problems that the community is facing. This is used to advise policy and law makers with regards to laws and policies that need to be made or revised.
The outreaches are done within the community at churches, mosques, schools, prisons, local groups (i.e. persons with disabilities), women’s groups and police stations.
