#COVID19 Support-Line Number: 0333 2300 100

Open Mon-Sun 7am-7pm

Sikh Council UK have a dedicated supportline that we wish to promote as the central helpline for the
Sikh Community during the Covid 19 Pandemic.

Seva (selfless service) is at the core of the Sikh Faith. During these difficult times, there are dozens of specialist/non-specialist organisations, Gurdwaras and individuals engaged in providing care for the elderly, self isolated and vulnerable. Our aim is to support and co-ordinate the work of the great Sikh organisations as well as safeguard the users of our services from fraud.

Note: We do not wish to step on the toes or undermine the work of any Sikh or Non-Sikh Organisation actively engaged in support work. We’re not asking anyone to shut down their own services or replace their helplines with ours.
