Readers will be familiar with Deepika Harjani who was a Brexit Officer with the British Consulate in Tenerife until recently. She is now Regional Coordinator for Age in Spain which has just launched in the Canaries. Age in Spain is one of three organizations in Spain funded by the British Government to provide practical support to UK Nationals to complete residency requirements to secure their rights under the Withdrawal Agreement but is also obviously a charity that provides support generally to those living in the Canaries.
Anyone struggling with the residency process and in need of additional help can visit gov.uk/livinginspain but even in areas not specifically covered by one of the organizations you can still get assistance by calling Age in Spain or IOM’s helpline, and this is true for those under retirement age as well, at least in terms of residence requirements.
Age in Spain is also looking for volunteers in these islands, and those interested should click these links:
