THE Government of the Balearic Islands plans to increase the budget destined for disabled children by 30 per cent to €2.8 million next year.

The Councillor of Social Services and Cooperation, Fina Santiago, announced that the budget for Early Care will be increased, allowing for more use of groups which work with the mentally disabled.

The Early Care Service is aimed at children between zero and six years old in order to detect developmental problems and put measures in place to boost their abilities and ensure their welfare.


The service was launched in 2007 and there are currently 7,100 sessions at the Joan XXIII centre for 91 families.
