Social Welfare opens the process of citizen participation for the Municipal Plan of Inclusion and Social Cohesion
This plan will include the lines of action to fight against poverty and exclusion
The Department of Social Welfare of the City of Benidorm has opened the process of citizen participation planned for the drafting of the Municipal Plan for Inclusion and Social Cohesion (PMICS). Included in the regional plan of the same name, the PMICS will collect a series of strategic lines to be promoted and implemented by the local administration to fight against poverty and exclusion.
The social welfare mayor, Angela Llorca, explained that with this process of participation "we want the public to show us their views on the subject and make the contributions they deem appropriate, filling out an online questionnaire that is available today on the municipal website www .benidorm.org " The questionnaire is in the specific section 'Municipal Plan of Inclusion and Social Cohesion' enabled within the area of Social Welfare and can be completed until next November 15.
Throughout the questionnaire, citizens can explain what they consider to be the problems that can occur in the municipality at the level of inequality and exclusion, the possible affected groups or the areas where they can occur. The results of these questionnaires will be analyzed and taken into account when preparing the PMICS.
Llorca recalled that the writing of this document "began last September with the collection and analysis of demographic, economic and social data that allow us to know the statistical reality presented by our city, to later complete that information with which we contribute the different social agents and with the process of citizen participation that we have already enabled ". Subsequently, several meetings have been held with municipal technicians, political groups of the corporation, associations and entities related to social assistance such as Cruz Roja and Cáritas, and also those organizations that represent specific groups such as the Association of Relatives of Alzheimer's patients (AFA) ".
The PMICS - subsidized by the Ministry - will be ready in December, at which point a specific Municipal Council will be created that will be responsible for proposing the actions to be applied based on the strategic lines included in the document.
