Europe Direct Information network
Europe Direct Information Centres act as an interface between citizens and the European Union at a local level.
The mission of the network is to:
- enable local citizens to obtain information, advice, assistance and answers to questions about the EU’s institutions, legislation, policies, programmes and funding opportunities;
- actively promote local and regional debate about the EU and its policies;
- allow the European institutions to improve the dissemination of information tailored to local and regional needs;
- give the public the opportunity to send feedback to the EU institutions in the form of questions, opinions and suggestions.
The Centres are designed to give members of the public local access to information on the role of the EU and how it operates. The Centres are free to display material on a variety of topics and views on the EU, and they explain what the EU does and why it is relevant to the people of Wales and the UK.
Europe Direct also has a free telephone information service – just call 00 800 6789 1011 from anywhere in the EU (between 09.00 – 18.00 CET, weekdays).
