The Espai de l'Inmigrant opened in 2014 as a result of the situation generated by the new health and welfare laws, as a place of welcome and support for people excluded by their legal, economic or administrative status . It is an open forum for collaboration and participation.
The Espai de l'Inmigrant consists of a medical office, a legal and administrative consultancy office, and a support group. It runs a full programme of workshops, seminars, lectures, awareness-raising and protest campaigns, as well as Spanish language courses, creative workshops, and a popular dining service.
