Support at The Link

Please note that Baildon Community Link is here for the needy and vulnerable and the information below is intended to support that work. As a result of the current situation many people will have questions and need information that we probably are not in a position to provide or comment on. Please use other sources where appropriate.


If you are self isolating and do not have anyone else such as a friend, neighbour or relative to help you shop and you have been unable to access online shopping then we will do our utmost to help with our network of local volunteers.  Again, ring us on 01274 588681 or email

Welcome to the website for Baildon Community Link. Many of the day-to-day activities of Baildon Community Link are covered within our facebook page so please follow us there. There you will find entries for events and you can join in some of the conversations.

Please use the menu to navigate some of the broad topics covered by the website – such things as Youth, People, The Link and Timetable

One of the downsides of facebook is that information can be quickly lost as new entries are made. Therefore the purpose of this website is to provide information that doesn’t change quickly over time. We will try to keep the information on here up to date but people and plans do change so if your initial contact using the information under a particular subject doesn’t seem to work please feel free to contact us direct.

The website has an entry for many of the activities the Baildon Community Link is involved in. You can see these by viewing the Activities category and view the Timetable to see when these activities take place. Note that not all activities have regular, planned dates and so the Timetable may not have an entry for all activities.

Link closure during Covid-19

The link building is closed to visitors during this time but staff and volunteers are working hard in providing support to the community. This is why we are here but of course the way we provide this support will be very different to the normal open door approach and social interaction.

It is likely that we will be asking ourselves several times a day “Can we open the doors now?” and we will be having more formal reviews of the situation as things change. Please be reassured that we will restore normal service as soon as this is sensible.

If you read some of the other pages on the website, or follow us on facebook, you will see that we are not being idle. If any of the areas mentioned elsewhere apply to you, or you know of others, then please use the contact details provided on those pages.
