Do you or someone you know need help in Silsden, Steeton or Eastburn?

The Silsden Emergency Planning Group has been running the Silsden Helpline since the end of March 2020 to support local residents who are shielding or self-isolating during the Coronavirus crisis.

As of Monday 6th July, the Silsden Helpline is just open 10am-12noon Monday to Friday only. We are no longer available in the afternoons or at weekends, due to a reduction in demand.

We are also running the Silsden Chatterbox service to connect lonely or isolated people with local volunteers who will phone on a regular basis to check-in or have a chat.
