During the recent #UNMS2018 we were delighetd to be joined by our #British #Consul #Andalucia Charmaine Arbouin. She talked about the increasing concern about the ex-pat older community in the Costa del Sol who become more vulnerable partuclarly when they have no family assistance. As a result the Britsh Consulate working together with University of Birmingham and Neil Hesketh have created a new online bi-lingual resource to help connect Britsh Nationals over 50 with the support they need.
Please visit www.SupportInSpain.info and you will find organisations that offer support by the type of help required and in the area where you live. This website provides details of official Spanish government and non-government organisations as well as many others in the voluntary sector. It is designed to help you quickly find contact information and a brief description of the services offered to support you, or a friend or relative, on a wide range of issues.

Ali Meehan from Costa Women suggested that now is the time to #MakeItHappen.
Costa Women provides social & business networking for ladies throughout Spain, with a whole range of events taking place each month. As Ali said, lonliness is very much a person feeling they are not understood by others, and in a new country that can be even worse – please extend the hand of friendship to a neighbour and say hello, it could make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
