ALICANTE’s provincial council, the Diputacion, has approved two grants that Teulada-Moraira town hall will use for municipal social services. 

The first grant of €45,031 has been earmarked to help alleviate the social and economic impact of Covid-19. 

The town hall will now be able to increase its assistance for the homeless thanks to adequate personnel and resources, ensuring that both they and the persons who are attending to them are sufficiently protected, explained Teulada-Moraira’s Social Welfare councillor, Mamen Botija.  


The grant will also be used to increase the budget that has already been set aside to top up the income of needy families to ensure that their basic needs are covered. 

The second €68,159 allocation will be used for the municipality’s home assistance system, Botija said. 

“These grants are vital at a time like this when these services are so necessary for disadvantaged residents,” the councillor declared. 

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
