Fuengirola aims to get closer to residents with shake-up in social services structure

  • There are now eight districts instead of five

The councillor for Social Services in Fuengirola, Francisco José Martín, has been explaining improvements made to social services coverage in the municipality since last July.

Saying that the aim of the changes is “to get closer” to residents, he announced that there are now eight districts instead of five.

The western side of the town now has four districts which are served from the Puebla Lucía building in Calle Paloma Blanca.

For the eastern end of the town, the social services centre is in the Los Boliches district town hall.

The department covers a wide range of services, including home help, rent support, emergency needs, food banks and addiction.
