About Daniel Yorath House

Daniel Yorath House is a brain injury rehabilitation centre where people initially come for a 12-week assessment period, where they begin a rehabilitation period to support their recovery. Recovery is then reviewed and may be extended to allow for further rehabilitation to be supported.


The main centre comprises nineteen ensuite bedrooms, six with full tracking hoists. There is also a specialist-assisted bathroom. There are two fully equipped rehabilitation kitchens to support individuals to regain their daily living skills, a large comfortable communal lounge, a light and airy conservatory, and an extensive activities room.

We have several specialist assessment and therapy rooms, a fully equipped physio gym and a large private garden to aid recovery.

Our rehabilitation models

Our specialist rehabilitation is based on a neuro-behavioural approach and focuses on enabling people to function more independently and develop their lives as they choose. The multi-disciplinary team has specialist assessment and therapy rooms to aid individuals in recovery.

The programme may include:

  • Educational and therapeutic sessions
  • Support for personal, social, and domestic skills
  • Guided leisure time
  • Behavioural management
  • Community access
  • Vocational support and training

The people we support are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes, and we promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process. Home leave is encouraged wherever possible.

Becoming more independent

In addition to the main centre, there is a two-bedroom transitional supported living home within the centre grounds where people can strengthen their skills before moving onto a more independent environment.

Access to the wider community forms an integral part of the rehabilitation journey, and Daniel Yorath House’s proximity to shops and leisure facilities and easy access to Leeds and Wakefield make it ideally situated for community integration. These locations also offer opportunities for education, training, and work placements.
