Site Help

The website is divided into two sections.

  • A list of useful topics to help guide you to the right advice and organisations
  • A directory of useful organisations that can be searched by type of support and also narrowed to your local area

Search helpful topics

We currently have advice on over fifty topics that British nationals over 50 commonly need extra help and support on in Spain. Scroll down the list and consult the ones that most interest you. In some cases you may be directed to other external websites which could have more up-to-date or detailed information.

You may also be directed back to the directory for local or national organisations that can help on the particular subject you are reading about.

Search the directory

There are currently over 300 different addresses and contact details for organisations that provide support across the Costa del Sol and inland Malaga province.

You can search by type of support and also local town or village (town hall area)

Support required: In the search box scroll down the list of categories and add the one (or ones) that most interests you.

You can also leave this field blank if you wish.

Find who covers your area: If you want you can add in the place where you live to see organisations which cover your area, even if they are actually located in other nearby towns. Search for the town or village where you are. This keeps your search relevant to your area.

Important note: you must search for the district council area where you are. For example, if you live in Calahonda, which is run by Mijas Council, you should search Mijas, or if you live in Sabinillas you should search Manilva.

You don’t have to put in a place name if you don’t want to.

You can also search the directory by keyword and name of organisation instead

Click on each organisation that comes up on you search result for more information. You will see a general description and at the end contact details. Many organisations are charities and rely on the work of volunteers so their response time when you contact them may vary.

You can send comments and suggestions, plus ideas for updates to [email protected]
