At the start of the Coronavirus Emergency this page was set up to provide Denton residents with essential information and support.
It has now been updated to reflect the changing situation and cover a wider field.
Unfortunately, from time to time some people run into financial difficulties.
However there are many sources of advice and assistance available.
Further details can be found HERE.
Denton has had its own local charity for many years. Entitled "Denton Relief in Need" it can provide financial assistance to local residents.
Further details can be obtained from:
Helen Sida-Page - 07966 492962, or
The Rector, Revd. Chris Hutton - 01986 895423.
With many people experiencing self-isolation during the Covid pandemic, either voluntary or imposed, the initial local support system included a rolling list of people willing to help with shopping, picking up prescriptions etc. for those who needed it.
This system was eventually suspended but two contact numbers are still available:
- The Hanners – 01986 788414 and
- The Cardens – 01986 788279.
Denton is a very supportive community and there is usually someone willing to help out when needed. Either call one of the numbers above or if you are on Dentontalk post a request there and someone will come to your aid.
