We are delighted to welcome volunteers to LS29 Time from all walks of life. From professionals with a background in special needs, to young people who are looking for work experience, we have volunteer roles for all.  

Volunteers come to us from the Ilkley community, from sixth forms at local schools, and from Outside the Box, an Ilkley social enterprise. All play a vital role in keeping LS29 Time running. Our volunteer roles include:

  • Helping to organise activities (if you have an interest in arts, sports or music you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you!)

  • Supporting keyworkers in caring for children

  • Preparing snacks and drinks

  • Taking photographs for our social media and marketing 

  • Acting as role models and buddies to the young people

  • Tidying and cleaning up after activities

Volunteers need to be over 16, have two references, and be willing to have an enhanced DBS check if required. 


We currently hold sessions in the Bradford Local Authority Summer, Easter and Christmas holidays. Volunteers are invited to attend our staff and volunteer briefs and debriefs at the beginning and end of each session. You will be offered two 15 minute breaks during a full day session/one 15 minute break during a half day, and £5 expenses for each full day worked.  

Several of our volunteers have moved on to paid work at the holiday club, and we are always happy to provide references for regular volunteers.

LS29 Time would like to thank the National Lottery Community Fund and lottery players for their generous support.
