ACASA - Age Concern’s national casework service in Spain - continues to be extremely busy with referrals of clients from throughout Spain. Mostly these are residents of the areas of Spain with the highest numbers of British expatriates i.e. Andalucia and the Valencian Community.
The members of ACASA’s Executive Committee are also resident in different parts of Spain and normally hold their monthly meetings via telephone conferences. However in September they were pleased to have the opportunity to meet in the British Embassy in Madrid. They were discussing the appointment of ACASA’s new Country Manager, a post which is based in the office of the British Consulate General in Madrid.
The picture shows Executive Committee members Judy Arnold-Boakes, ACASA president; Angela Keay, Secretary; Sarah-Jane Morris, who is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Consular Network Manager for Southern Europe, and ACASA Treasurer; and Oscar Franklin, International Programme Manager for Age UK.
ACASA has two client bases - people over the age of 50, and those of any age who serve or used to serve in the British Armed Forces, and their familieis, as ACASA does the work of SSAFA Forces Help in Spain. Contact 902 00 38 38 or [email protected] for further information.
