Consell announces assistance for seniors and islanders with disabilities

The Formentera Office of Social Welfare is pleased to report that local seniors and people with disabilities can submit applications for assistance from today. Aid this year totals €18,000.

Among the various requirements, applicants must be Formentera residents and either at least sixty-five years old or have a recognised disability (33% or more). The money can be used to buy wheelchairs, glasses/contact lenses, dental prostheses, hearing aids, hospital beds or material for professional social and health care treatments such as physiotherapy, psychomotor therapy, speech therapy, etc.

Individual beneficiaries can receive up to a combined total of €2,900. A technical committee will oversee the reviewing of applications. Applicants must present an itemised list of expenses with original invoices and these must correspond to the period from 1 June 2021 to 31 May 2022.

Terms of the assistance can be found in the Official Gazette of the Balearic Islands (BOIB) and on the Consell de Formentera website. Islanders have until 22 August 2022 to drop off applications at the Formentera Office of Social Welfare, located at the Formentera Day Centre (Centre de Dia), or the Citizen's Information Office (OAC).
