Barcelona Care Centre is a leading city facility that aims to act as a link between services, programmes and resources relating to care work. It works in coordination with all the stakeholders in the territory and addresses the diversity of groups that provide and receive care in Barcelona.
The information point aims to offer a comprehensive first response geared towards the available resources and services in this field and to help people by gathering all the information they need in one place.
It will offer information and guidance about where to find services and resources in the following areas:
- Care for dependent or ill persons and practical support.
- Professionalising employment and training.
- Legal and judicial matters.
- Emotional support and activities for carers.
On this website, you will find the search engine for care and support services and resources.
If you cannot find what you are looking for, or if you need more information, send us your query.
You can also telephone us on 93 413 21 21, from Monday to Friday from 8.15 am to 7 pm.
Or you can come directly to the Barcelona Care Centre, on Av. del Marquès de l’Argentera, 22 from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 1.30 pm and from 3 pm to 6.30 pm, or during the first weekend of every month (Saturday, from 4 pm to 7.30 pm, and Sunday from 10 am to 1.30 pm).
Weekend services will also be offered on legal aspects, along with customised advice and chats.
Training, exchange and networking
With the aim of keeping the available information current, the centre's team of professionals will continually update the search engine by means of networking and ongoing relations with the territory's stakeholders and organisations.
The centre is also intended to be a space for training and exchange where the know-how and expertise of the city's care workers is acknowledged, a place where their contributions are recognised, and where relations and the creation of a network among the various stakeholders and groups can be fomented by means of working groups and spaces for exchange, meetings, training workshops and informative and awareness-raising actions concerning care work. Consult the activities calendar.
It also aims to encourage meetings and to help create connections between people and organisations that work in care in the city, enabling new knowledge about care to be generated and promoting the proposal of initiatives designed to improve existing resources and the everyday lives of carers.
