The Harleston Community Information Centre, open 6 days a week, helps around 5500 people a year. Our dedicated, trained volunteers can offer assistance with various enquiries including information on South Norfolk and Norfolk County Council services, Voluntary and Community groups, benefits, local walks, cycle routes, keeping fit and healthy and managing finances. We are able to issue and renew Concessionary Senior Bus Passes for Norfolk residents.
We have a wealth of written publications as well as access to the internet to search for the most up to date information from various organisations.
Throughout the year the centre acts as Box Office for a number of community groups in the town including the Harleston Cinema. We also have information on cultural events and attractions, theatre programmes and leisure activities running throughout South Norfolk.
Harleston Community Information Centre is able to issue Waveney Foodbank vouchers to those in need. Food boxes are issued by the Food bank when presented with a voucher. The Food bank is open in Harleston on Tuesdays and Fridays, but in emergencies, home delivery can be arranged with the bank at other times.
Harleston Community Information Centre hosts a number of events throughout the year, all of our events can be found here.
