Our Story

Yatton House provides a service to adults with Learning and Physical disabilities and has been established for 34 years. Our aim is and has been committed to developing the individually initiating and organising activities aimed at maximising individual progression, which incorporates personal growth; community knowledge; fellowship; self help; social skills; education and leisure.

As a small registered charity situated in North Yorkshire, Yatton House Society has been recognised by Hambleton and Richmondshire NHS Primary Care Trust, the Friarage Hospital, South Tees Trust, North Yorkshire County Council, Middlesbrough B.C and Redcar and Cleveland B.C Social Services since it was developed in 1981 - 'The International Year of the Disabled.

Our Organisation has been undergoing moderising and social change to meet with the White Paper "Valuing people Now".

Our aim is to move from a day centre for people with physical and learning disability into a small enterprise to enable people with physical and learning disabilities to have an opportunity to lead an independent and a normal way of life, providing real work oppurtunities and skills that could enable them to move into paid or voluntary work in the future. This is not a new concept and has been talked about for many years. As we move into the 21st Century; we believe this is the right time to turn the theoretical work in to practice. Yatton House has always played a part in the local community and this ha sproved to be of value for people with learning and physical disabilities, their families and carers.

To assist us in moving into the 21st Century we have completed some much needed work. For the Members, we have held meetings to enable the Service to become User led and therefore enabling Members to make choices about their future and the future of Yatton House.
