The renovation project for the new office for the Care, Recovery and Reception Service (SARA) has a budget of 1,773,937.74 euros, which will be used to condition a space of nearly 900 square metres.

Around 415 square metres will be used for spaces to attend to women, with individual soundproof support rooms to guarantee privacy and spaces for group activities and assistance. The working space for staff at the centre will use around 340 square metres of floor space, with offices and meeting rooms.

The work is expected to start at the end of the summer this year and completed in September 2025, with the service to start operating at the new premises at the start of 2026.
