HPC provides free legal assistance to asylum seekers, writes reports, and conducts monitoring of asylum seekers and migrants’ rights in Croatia. Their capacity in terms of providing free legal aid is minimal, and not all migrants get their support. Vulnerable groups have a priority. If you are really in need of legal help, it is a good idea to keep calling them.
