People with a Carer's Card receive a monthly newsletter with the most important news, resources and what’s on in the month.

They also get personalised communications based on their interests, whether it be news of interest in the field of care, the city activities calendar, information on physical, cultural and leisure activities or information capsules with practical information useful for care.

Information, guidance and personalised advice is offered to resolve doubts and concerns that arise in the day-to-day care process, for example, advice on care when an illness is diagnosed or there is a bereavement, among other situations.

The service is offered in person, by telephone and/or online at the Espacio Barcelona Cuida (Barcelona Cares Centre) and the 16 Vilaveïna territorial units.

The Espacio Barcelona Cuida (Barcelona Cares Centre) offers information and specialised support for families and workers throughout the process of formalising a contract for work in the home, whether it be the formalities to be carried out or information on how to draw up a pay slip, for example. The aim is to promote the regularisation of the employment situation, to ensure that care work is carried out under fair and dignified conditions, and to fight against job insecurity, labour market segmentation, the feminisation of poverty and double working hours.

To access this service, it is necessary to make an appointment by telephone, online or in person at the Espacio Barcelona Cuida (Barcelona Cares Centre).
