About Daniel Yorath House

Daniel Yorath House specialises in the assessment and rehabilitation of people with an acquired brain injury and complex needs such as cognitive, physical and/or emotional difficulties, including physical and verbal aggression, impaired social functioning and disinhibited behaviour.

Specialist rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently, develop their lives as they choose and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible.

At The Disabilities Trust we aim to guide service users through the entire process of rehabilitation, as well as offering support, education and continuing help to their families, carers and friends.

We actively promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process, and home leave is encouraged wherever possible.
