Hastings Advice & Representation Centre (HARC) provides free confidential advice, information and representation to over 10,000 people in a typical year, raising over three million pounds in unclaimed benefits.

HARC is a registered Charity. It has two shops, one in Hastings and the other in St Leonards-on-Sea. We rely on donated items in order to raise funds for our confidential Advice Service.

We aim to relieve local poverty and improve the quality of life for those on a low income by providing comprehensive advice on all Welfare Benefits and Tax Credits. HARC is part of a one stop advice service based at Advice and Community hub
