Walfinch, a national homecare provider, is proud to announce that Sarah Wickham, Director of its Walfinch Suffolk Coastal and Norfolk franchises, has expanded her reach in East Anglia by purchasing a third franchise in West Suffolk.
Sarah Wickham has been a valued member of the Walfinch franchise community since 2019, when she launched the very first franchise in Saxmundham, east Suffolk. With her extensive experience in the care industry, she built a strong team of carers who share her passion for making a positive difference in people’s lives, and formed a loyal client-base.
In late 2022, Sarah expanded her business by launching a second franchise in Norfolk, which has also been highly successful. Now, with the acquisition of a third franchise in West Suffolk, Sarah is poised to bring Walfinch’s exceptional level of care and support to even more clients in the region, as she explains:
“I am thrilled to bring our exceptional level of care and support to even more clients in the East Anglia region with the purchase of the West Suffolk Walfinch franchise,” she said. “I am grateful for the ongoing operational support and expertise provided by the franchisor, which has been instrumental in the success of my first two franchises. I am excited about the opportunities that the new location will bring. “
As part of the Walfinch West Suffolk branch, Sarah and her team will provide a range of care services to people living in their own homes in Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Lakenheath, Mildenhall, Thetford, Woolpit, Needham Market and the many villages across the area.
Walfinch is a franchise that offers individuals the opportunity for franchisees to become directors of their own successful homecare businesses, while also helping local people lead healthy, happy, and independent lives. With comprehensive training, ongoing support, proven back-office systems, and an established referrals pipeline provided, Walfinch franchisees can take charge of their own success.
“To see Sarah’s continued success and growth as a Walfinch franchisee is something I greatly applaud,” said Amrit Dhaliwal, CEO of Walfinch. “Her experience in providing the highest quality of care and support to her clients, as well as her commitment to building a strong team of carers, makes her an outstanding member of the Walfinch community. We are confident that her third franchise will be just as successful as her first two.”
Recently named as the franchisee whose team provided the most care hours at the Walfinch franchise conference and with over 25 years’ experience in the care industry, Sarah today employs 100 carers across the three locations.
Concludes Sarah: “I understand what is required to care for people and I understand business; with the success of my Suffolk Coastal and Norfolk businesses, backed by the expert operational team of Walfinch, I am confident that I can extend these services to communities across West Suffolk and fill a gap for providing an outstanding, flexible domiciliary service, from as little as one-hour care per week.”
