Since many asylum seekers live in private flats, there is no problem of access for any interested groups or individuals. Even the new temporary housing buildings are accessible to groups and individuals who wish to make contact. There is frequent involvement by members of the general public throughout Sweden in making new contacts.

The LMA provides that information should be provided to all asylum seekers on organisations providing assistance to asylum seekers.
