Mazarrón Council / Ayuntamiento
To use council services in the town hall generally you should take a Spanish speaker with you, however the tourist office in the Puerto can normally help with a basic orientation in where to find council services in English. In addition, in the inland area of Camposol, an English-speaking representative of the council who can answer questions normally visits the Centro Socio-Cultural (Community Centre) opposite Sector B5, currently (Spring 2021) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 to 12:00.
The local town hall / council office is the gateway for contacting Social Services’ team of support professionals in Spain and to access their services. This is also the route for applying for Spanish statutory social care. For some benefits and much of the social care available, 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 has not been 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.)
