To provide a range of high quality services which support disabled people

Founded 1937

  • Mission statement

    Disability Action Yorkshire provides care and support for adults in Yorkshire who have physical, learning or sensory disabilities. We believe that disabled people should have exactly the same choices and opportunities as everyone else and we provide services that enable disabled adults to live the lifestyle of their own choosing. Our services include

    Training services, providing employability-skills required for disabled people to enter work.

    Residential care home - 34 Claro Road, providing accommodation for up to 20 physically disabled younger adults. The focus at Claro Road is on developing life-skills to enable young disabled people to live independly. A 2-person training flat enables the transition to independent living.
    Home Care: a home-care service, providing care and support within the home for disabled and elderly people. This can range from personal care, cooking and cleaning to just a chat. Our aim is to enable people to remain living in their own home for as long as possible.

    We do not receive any government funding and rely on the generosity and support of others to continue providing these services. We aim to provide a comprehensive range fo services that care for a service-user throughout their adults lives, rather than just addressing one single problem.
