Covid-19 Coronavirus response information for Otley

Currently we all face a unique set of challenges caused by the worldwide outbreak and spread of the coronavirus.

 A group of local organisations including Otley Action for Older People, Otley Churches Together, Otley Food Bank, Otley Town Council and ourselves have come together to offer support to those who need it at this time.

 We recognise that we are in this together. We want everyone to stay safe and to look after one another.

 Those under the age of 60 years who are isolated, alone or under self-quarantine can contact the Courthouse on 01943 467466.

Within the guidelines of social distancing, we have a team of volunteers who are willing to go shopping, visit the post office and do other various errands for those who are remaining at home as a result of COVID-19.

 The telephone will be staffed between 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday (excluding Good Friday and Easter Monday). An answerphone service is available outside office hours and you will be contacted the following day.

 If you are also able to offer some volunteering time to assist local groups, please contact us at the above number.

 Those over 60 in need of help should contact Otley Action for Older People on 01943 463965.


Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by people in Otley, West Yorkshire. After an eight year development period we transformed a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a unique arts and resource centre for our community.
