What is VilaVeïna?

VilaVeïna is a free service from Barcelona City Council that provides information about social care services and resources available near you for the care of children, older people, people with disabilities, etc.

You’ll find us close at hand at different points around the city, ready to offer help and advice on the available resources that will be best suited to your needs.

At VilaVeïna centres you’ll also find teams of professionals who can help you to connect with others.

Because caring as part of a community is always better than caring alone.

What will you find there?

  • Personalised support, and information about available resources and the social care services nearest to you.
  • A meeting point for families and carers. A social space for play and relaxation, and for establishing links with others.
  • Workshops, talks and other activities aimed at improving health, emotional well-being, helping people to feel better about themselves,
    and a place to meet up with others.
  • Support groups, for people who are in the same position as you, and who need to share experiences and get through difficult times.
  • Space to take a break and offer respite care services enabling carers to take a break and have some time for themselves, in the knowledge that those they are caring for are being well looked after.
  • Legal advice on carer recruitment, and employment rights and duties.
  • Support for projects focused on collective caring.

Who is it aimed at?

Everyone, but carers in particular.

  • Children
  • Senior citizens
  • People with functional diversity

It is also aimed at:

  • Professional carers working in care homes or as home carers.
  • Those who want to plan their own care.
  • People who want to care for themselves.
