HELP VEGA BAJA is a registered charity which provides assistance all year round to anyone in their time of need.
They have an office in San Miguel de Salinas (Calle Lope de Vega, 46) and an Help Desk in La Marina from where the volunteers provide both residents and visitors to Spain with a wide variety of local advice, such as information on Residents Certificates, registering with your Town Hall, car registration, procedures on death.
The offices also act as a point of contact for anyone seeking local information on English-speaking services and trades people.
Help Vega Baja stocks a large range of orthopaedic equipment and can provide this for hire at a very reasonable price.
They also provide a team of Hospital visitors who attend the Hospitals in Orihuela and Torrevieja to contact the English-speaking patients.
They have a Friendship Centre with weekly meetings, as well as a diabetic support group that meets monthly.
The charity can help when there is a death in the family, as the volunteers are well-versed in all aspects of such events and are able to give advice as to the procedures to be followed in such circumstances.
The Emergency Contact Scheme helps our members in an emergency, plus they also have a register of locally based translators, nurses and carers who provide their services for a fee.
