Help available with benefit claims

Rye's Food Bank - stocked up for a while - but advice and support is important too in getting the right benefits

Hastings Advice and Representation Centre (HARC) is a local charity of over 30 years standing offering free welfare benefit advice, information and support to all residents of Hastings and the whole of Rother.

Whether a full check is required to see if there is any extra benefit help available, help needed with completing applications, or support required to appeal wrong decisions, HARC is here to help, and is fully operational during the lockdown and beyond.

Last year saw us raise over £4 million pounds in previously unclaimed benefits and if any local residents require help, especially during these unprecedented times please call us on our welfare benefits helpline number 03333 440 681 (local rate) Monday to Friday 9am-5pm or email

More information can also be found on our website.
