LS29 feature strip_11

The LS29 group is all about children with special needs having good times together as a family, and trying new activities in a supportive environment.

It costs £15 a year to join (£5 if on working families tax credits or income support) and most children’s activities were subsidised last year thanks to the great support of Ilkley Round Table, CNET, Susie Baxter Trust and Ilkley Cycling Club.

Our website is kept up to date with all our forthcoming activities – members are welcome to email us to make a booking or send an enquiry.  We will get back in touch with further information.

To be fair to other families and funders, we ask that if you cancel within 12 hours of the trip and your places can’t be filled, please pay for the full price of your places (even if it was free to you).

Please be aware that all LS29 activities are undertaken at your own risk – LS29 is a parent led and is not responsible for your child’s safety or behaviour.

Please assess each activity for risks to your children and yourself, and follow the venue rules and health & safety information.  Any accidents should be reported to the venue.

Some of our regular activities include:-
