Hastings Advice and Representation Centre

HARC provide specialist Welfare Benefit Advice and Representation to people of all ages

How we can help

HARC provides confidential and impartial support from application to Appeal tribunal.

Our Specialist Welfare Benefit Advisors can help you understand what financial assistance you are entitled to, assist with claims and support you to challenge and appeal unfavourable decisions.

HARC has maintained a service since the commencement of the Pandemic and will  continue to do so. We are currently providing the majority of our services remotely in order to keep both our clients and our staff safe. The recent increased wave of Coronavirus cases and lockdown restrictions mean response times may currently be longer than we would like. Please bear with us during these difficult times.
