F.A.C.E. Has been somewhat instrumental in encouraging ACASA to move into the Arboleas / Albox area, and the meeting was called to see what progress has been made to date.
Kim Stollard reported that there were now six branches in Spain and the Balearic Islands. These were based in Estepona, Torreveija, Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and on the Costa Calida. She also reported that two new branches would be operating imminently and these would be in the Arboleas / Albox area and also in Cadiz. Four volunteers were already in the process of being trained in the Arboleas / Albox area, and would be operational shortly.
ACASA was conceived in 2009 as a partnership project with the British Embassy, Age UK and SSAFA Forces Help to support the English speaking population in Spain. ACASA has over 70+ trained volunteers throughout Spain and the Balearic Islands, and these have helped thousands of British people over come poverty, combat isolation and assist with integration into Spanish life. They can provide practical help and advice on living in Spain or returning to the United Kingdom.
F.A.C.E. Have supported ACASA in the past and at this meeting presented a 500€ cheque to Kim Stollard.
With previous donations made, this in effect means that F.A.C.E. Have paid for the training of one of the volunteers.
