When: Monthly on Monday afternoons
Venue: Pensionistas

This group is all about empowering and helping our members. The vision is to use our natural empathy, sympathy, resources and community spirit to help and support each other when needed. This we do by donating an hour here or there and through the loaning of resources as and when you can.

Monthly meetups encourage networking and are designed to build a community environment, as well as help members with those issues that seem to elude us,

There is usually a speaker or tutor on hand to talk, explain, show or help with those tricky apps or forms that will benefit you.

For example:

  • Digital signatures and why they are helpful for tracking Ajuntamiento demands/bills and payments. Help to get them.
  • Medical centre app (download and show how to use it).
  • How to apply for the subsided holiday scheme.
  • How to apply for a disability parking badge.
  • The new app for tracking your car information.

After each meeting, any relevant information or resource can be seen here.

Denise, The Almoner, will keep a full list and the items will be published on the group page, along with offers of help for particular tasks; i.e. dog-walking, shopping, cat feeding, lifts etc. The list of loan items will also include car seats / booster seats and pushchairs / fold up beds / even tools and equipment etc., as well as a more expansive medical equipment list. We all have something lurking in a cupboard.
