ABOUT HELP VEGA BAJA
HELP is a registered charity and appears on the register of charities held by the Valencian government. They help people of all ages with all sorts of problems within the Vega Baja area from La Marina to Pilar de la Horadada.
They have a centre at San Miguel de Salinas which includes a charity shop and a hire centre for mobility equipment. They also have a helpdesk in La Marina. Each of these supply a wide range of information and advice to members and nonmembers alike. Typical enquiries include questions on residence, health care, driving, bereavement, wills, burglaries and much more. If the answer to a problem is not known immediately, every effort is made to obtain the appropriate information.
This charity is very fortunate in having the support of a hospital visiting team who are able to visit the Vega Baja Hospital, near Orihuela and the Torrevieja hospital in Los Balcones upon request from the patient, relative or carer and in the very near future they will be able to offer a hospital visiting service at the Quironsalud Hospital in the International ward.
They also have a welfare officer who is able to offer advice and assistance, and our Connections team provide a 24 hour confidential and emotional support helpline. If you would like to speak with one of their trained volunteers please call the telephone number : 965 021 552 .
They operate a hire service of orthopaedic equipment at low cost to the public and reduced fees for their members. Their vast stock of equipment includes wheelchairs, walking frames, toilet seat raisers, bath seats and crutches. This service is available to both residents and visitors alike.
Events are held throughout the year to raise funds and they are able to support those in need. This includes charities and those unfortunate enough to find themselves facing financial difficulties. This would not be possible without the tremendous amount of work that is put in by their team of volunteers. All their volunteers work extremely hard throughout the year for our charity, often in the background and they are very grateful for their continued support. If you perhaps have a few hours a week to spare and are interested in finding out about becoming a volunteer with them, please get in touch. They would love to hear from you. There are a wide range of opportunities from office administration to hospital visiting and much more in between!
They are self-funding and obtain all of their income from membership fees, orthopaedic equipment rental, donations and fund raising activities, if you belong to a group or club that raises money for charity, please consider helping them. They always welcome any goods that can be sold or used as raffle prizes.
If you are a member of a local club or group and you think they would be interested in having someone from HELP come along to give a talk, please contact their San Miguel centre to make arrangements.
Their Facebook page (HELP Vega Baja) is proving very popular – please “like” their page and you will receive regular updates of events and activities at HELP plus information that may be of interest to you.
It is important for them to have your up to date contact information, please ensure that if you change your address, telephone number or email that you notify them in order that they can amend their records.
