Europe Direct

Europe Direct Information Centre Leeds is part of a network of centres in the UK, 500 across Europe which aim to act as an interface between the EU and its citizens at local level.

We can help with general questions on every aspect of Europe and can put you in touch with relevant specialist services if required. We have leaflets, brochures and materials to take away about the European Union's activities and policies. We also organise events and activities to make the public aware of the EU.
