Calvià council offers a multilingual international department to guide foreign residents and visitors on council services, council paperwork and local life. There are officers in the town hall in Calvià village itself and in the council offices of Palmanova on the coast. The four tourist offices across the Calvià municipal area can also help with information in English, as well as joining the ‘padrón’ municipal census as resident (or renewing it). These are in Palmanova, Magaluf, Peguera and Santa Ponça. The municipality of Calvià covers a broad coastal and inland area southwest of Palma including popular tourist and international residential areas.
The local town hall / council office is the normal gateway to Spanish social care or route for contacting Social Services’ team of support professionals. To access much of the social care or benefits, it is necessary to have been registered on Spanish town halls’ ‘padrón’ census registers for a minimum period of time; generally from one to five years in total depending on the type of support or benefit requested, although this can vary according to local policies.
Therefore, it is important that residents and their families think ahead and always register on their town ‘padrón’, and keep their details updated (see also Helpful Topics: Understanding the System on this website). (If a UK national resident is not registered on the ‘padrón’, in extreme cases some short-term emergency help may be available, but this is ad hoc, cannot be predicted and varies by municipality.)
