Who are we?


We are Age in Spain – the first national charity in Spain to be dedicated to the welfare of English-speaking older people.


We provide help, information and assistance to enable English speakers in Spain to live their best life and face foreseen and unforeseen circumstances.  

We are a professional non profit organisation run by volunteers - talented, experienced people who give our time for free. We provide you with the tools, resources and timely one to one support to help you effectively plan for and smoothly navigate a worry-free life in Spain. 


We have been providing our services across the whole of Spain, including the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, for more than thirty years. 



What do we do?


  • Information 


We provide you with information about all aspects of life in Spain so that you  can make informed choices, understand your rights, know how to comply with local legislation and integrate into your chosen community.


  • Health, care, and wellbeing


We tackle loneliness, help people become actively engaged in Spanish life, and support people to live independently for longer. We advise on health and social care provision so everyone can access services and make choices about their later life in Spain.


  • Campaigns, research, and policy development


We run awareness-raising campaigns and conduct research to make life better today and tomorrow. We work with other organisations in Spain and internationally to share best practice, ensure that the voices of older people are heard, and improve social cohesion and the contribution of older people in society.
