Age Concern España

1994

A Balearic Association known as O.A.S.I.S, with the agreement of Age Concern England, changed its name to Age Concern Spain (Baleares)

1994 – 1998

Increasingly closer ties with like-minded organisations throughout Spain and development of the organisation in the Islands led to the creation of Age Concern groups in Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca.

1998

A nationwide Federation known as Age Concern Spain was formed.

1999

A further name change took place to reflect our position its a Spanish charity and the organisation is now known as the Federación de Age Concern España.

2011

ACASA – the National Casework Service of Age Concern España – is launched as a nationally registered charity and the 7th member organisation of the Federación.

2012 – 2014

Additional Age Concern Organisations were set up in Conil de La Frontera, covering Costa de la Luz Sur, and in Fuengirola, covering Fuengirola and Mijas Costa Sur. This brings the number of member Age Concern España organisations to nine.
