Social Cooperation Service
To solve problems in the community it is essential to have the collaboration and support of the community itself, basically via volunteers. To increase interest in others, sensitize, make responsible and commit to the environment, is one of the primordial objectives of the Social Services. Only with open and plural participation, with understanding and tolerance, will we achieve a climate of serenity and closeness which favours social maturity in the face of difficulties and increases the capacity to resolve them.
The efforts of the community must be added to the work carried out by technicians and professionals for the greater effectiveness of the whole; i.e., the community itself must assume impulse and tracking functions of public activity in the prevention and integration of people, families and groups that share the same municipality.
In this sense, social services coordinate their own professionals in combination with the already existing community groups and with the recruitment and training of new volunteers; in addition, they try to ensure that those affected themselves will be the ones to actively help in their own recovery or that of others with similar or different problems.
This service is provided every Monday morning (09,00 to 14,00 hours) in the outbuildings of the Seniors Citizens Day Center (C/ San Miguel, 2 - Second Floor) of the Town Hall by the regional team of Community Social Services.
