People First Keighley and Craven used to be called the Out There Club.  It started in 2002 in an office at Acres House in Keighley. James Brown started the organisation because he wanted to organise his own nights out and not have them planned for him by other people.

We also offer support to carers by providing short breaks, these can be through the day, evenings or weekends. In 2003 we had our first social night out and we have been holding them every month since. In April 2006 we became People First Keighley & Craven. We decided to become People First Keighley & Craven advocacy group so we could speak up and help people with learing disabilities. 

There are lots of People First organisations all over the world, however we are all independent. We are affiliated (connected) to National People First in London. In 2008 we became a registered charity, our charity number is 1125278.
