Keighley people with learning disabilities are being invited to learn important life skills on residential trips.

People First Keighley and Craven is running the five-day courses for 10 people at a time.

The trips are being funded by the local Clinical Commissioning Group which oversees local GPs and other health services.

People First spokesman Jane Fisher said the trips encouraged healthy eating and lifestyle change.

She said: “It’s an opportunity for people to learn through exercising, cooking, eating and living together.”

The first trip, to a residential school in Harrogate, involved existing members of People First who have learning difficulties.

Future trips will be opened out to disable people across the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven area.

Jane said future trips would be held in August and September.

Call People First on 01535 607222 or email peoplefirst@live.co.uk for information on how to take part in the project.
