More opportunities for younger workers

The second vice president and councillor of Social Services, Equality and Housing in the Valencia region, Susana Camarero, has highlighted that 10.6 million euro has been incorporated into budgets for 2024 so that town councils and associations can hire 30% more youth technicians, that is, up to 365 professionals, 85 more than this year, to consolidate a “professionalized and recognised” youth sector.

Susana Camarero has closed this year’s edition of Infòrum in Elda, an event organised by the IVAJ, which, under the motto, “Thinking about the future, about new cycles; looking for the keys to the new youth system”, has brought together for two days 160 youth professionals from the municipalities and associations of the Valencian Community.

No more beach bars, for now

The beaches of the Orihuela Costa are now without beach bars, after an agreement was reached for the removal of the last remaining structures left over from the previous contactor.

An agreement was reached whereas the town hall would provide vehicles, and the previous contractor, Chiringuitos del Sol, would provide labourers to remove the last of the beach huts, whilst the process for starting a new contract tender proceeds in the background.

In recent years, visitors to Orihuela could benefit from beach bars all year round, and now, no concessioner is contracted to provide the service.

Tackling learning difficulties in Benidorm

Benidorm town hall has allocated 220,000 euro to help pay for treatment for schoolchildren with learning difficulties or disorders.

Families who could benefit from the financial help can register between November 20 and December 3, according to the Councillor for Education, Maite Moreno, who highlighted the importance of these children being able to access therapies with private professionals. “They are essential for the students, both on a personal and academic level, and hence the effort made by the City Council to guarantee through these aids that all Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary students who need it”. can access this psycho-pedagogical care.” For this reason, the City Council has increased the resources allocated to this line of aid by 124% since 2019.
