The national homecare franchise business, Walfinch, has relocated its central office hub to a new site in Wantage, Oxfordshire, to support the business’ expansion aspirations to double in size within the next 24-months.
Walfinch was launched in Oxford by local businessman Amrit Dhaliwal in late 2019, to provide high quality consistent care to people in their own homes. With increasing demand for homecare services, the business has grown to 26 franchised branches across the UK. It employs over 1,000 people and is on track to record revenues of £10m in the current financial year.
The relocation from Grove Street in the centre of Wantage to a dedicated 1,000 sq foot converted barn on the edge of the town, now provides the Walfinch team with a dedicated training and conference room, parking, and further space to grow.
Amrit Dhaliwal, CEO of Walfinch explains: “When I launched Walfinch just four years ago, we were located in just one room! However, as the business has expanded, the need for additional space has become apparent. The new space will be used by our Oxford care branch in addition to our operations and management team, all of whom provide support to our network of franchisees across the country. We are currently recruiting more healthcare supervisors, so our new base will give us the space for colleagues, as well as for hosting our regular franchisee training sessions.
“Wantage is a vibrant and centrally-located market town and so we were keen to remain in the area for consistency with our staff and clients; the new premises gives us the space to thrive, both inside and out, while offering an attractive, calm and welcoming space for the wellbeing of everyone.”
Walfinch provides care for a range of specialist conditions to enable elderly and vulnerable people to continue living independently at home. Services range from providing companionship or respite from 1-hour per week, to more intensive live-in care. The team is able to help those with a range of needs including those living with dementia, cerebral palsy or multiple sclerosis.
