The national charity, Age in Spain, is putting on residency pop up events for British nationals across the Canary Islands and other regions of Spain.
The free events will give British people affected by Brexit the chance to talk to someone in person about their residency doubts and receive information on the residency process in Spain.
Age in Spain Regional Coordinator Brad De Abreu said, “The end of the transition period is less than 100 days away and there are many people that still haven’t sorted their residency in Spain. We aim to help these people by providing free, accessible information in English to help them through the process.”
Age in Spain’s Residency Helpline has already helped over 430 people since June this year, with free, confidential and practical information provided by phone and email. They have also provided additional application support to 300 people. .
The Residency Helpline is supported by a team of professionally trained and extremely dedicated Residency Helpline Assistants. From Monday to Friday they answer queries from worried Brits who want to ensure their rights are guaranteed after the end of the transition period on December 31st 2020.
The Age in Spain website supports the service with accessible information, such as FAQs and blog posts to guide people through the residency process.
“Sometimes the online information itself is not enough or people have specific questions about their unique circumstances. This is where we can help to provide information in person,” Mr De Abreu, went on to say.
Age in Spain’s Residency Helpline Service is supported by the British Government’s UK National Support Fund to help to vulnerable and older people who might otherwise be passed by, due to barriers such as language, isolation, lack of confidence, lack of capacity, lack of access to technology, health issues, mobility issues, financial issues and the responsibilities of being a carer.
