Welcome to Help International Benidorm

Help International Benidorm is a registered charitable organisation, with no political or religious affiliations, run by volunteers to provide help to residents and visitors in emergencies and times of need:

  • We assist patients in hospital and pay regular visits to the housebound
  • We assist in emergencies, providing advice when people do not know where to turn.
  • We have several interpreters to assist people at medical appointments, or handling emergencies requiring the Spanish language.
  • We loan medical equipment- wheelchairs etc.- for short term use without charge.
  • HELP maintains a close relationship with the British Consulate in Alicante and with other charitable organisations.
  • Volunteer teachers provide free Spanish language lessons for HELP members. (A donation is required)
  • We organise our own social events and encourage house-bound members to participate. We raise funds which are used to assist other charities that serve the Costa Blanca community and we work as volunteers to serve that community.

Come and join us on a Thursday morning about 10.30 am at the José Llorca Linares Social Centre, Benidorm - see 'Our Location' for directions.

Parking Problems at Jose Llorca Linares Centre, Benidorm

PARKING PROBLEM ALERT AT JOSE LLORCA LINARES SOCIAL CENTRE, BENIDORM - Benidorm is building an underground car park, on the grounds next to the Centre. Parking is a nightmare and will be for two years, apparently. We really haven't any choice about holding the next meeting and the Christmas Fayre at the centre. No-one was told about this, the people at the Centre were as much in the dark as anyone else. Men turned up and put up fencing....that was that!!! So those of you that have to come by car - see if you can arrange a 'car share' to keep the number of cars down to a minimum.

The Big Shop!

The Big Shop

The Monthly 'BIG SHOP' just got bigger !! More big hearted residents from Camping Armanello have joined our quest to support the Relleu childrens home. The monthly food provision makes such a big difference to the homes budget, allowing the dedicated staff team to pay other bills, heating, lighting etc. Massive thank you to all those who contributed.

Meeting with Cruz Roja and the British Consulate

Our President, Bill, has, along with Beverley and Robert signed an agreement for partnership working between the British Embassy, HELP and the Cruz Roja (Red Cross) in Alicante. He recently attended a meeting with Cruz Roja and the British Consul, and learned a lot about recent changes in Spain - for instance ambulances must now belong to a private organisation and can no longer be run by local Town Halls. The consulate would like all local charities to communicate and co-operate with each other and to share ideas.
