Care & Elderly Services
Walfinch (formally known as Christies Care) is a home care agency providing personalised health care at home to individuals and families nationwide, from offices across the UK.
This quality care company provides live-in and visiting-hourly carers to a wide range of clients, including older people. It offers a huge menu of personal care services, including companion care, dementia care and respite care, plus care to vulnerable people living with a learning disability, physical disabilities, stroke rehabilitation, injury and convalescent care, all designed to improve quality of life.
Amrit Dhaliwal, managing director of Walfinch Franchising, is an experienced business leader and a former franchisee himself. Amrit is committed to the highest standards of domiciliary care provision and is renowned for his commitment to the business development and support of incoming and existing franchisees.
Walfinch’s dedication to exceptional care service delivery stems from its culture and values. For Walfinch, selecting the ideal franchisee has less to do with how much experience they have, but more to do with their commitment to the highest standards of care delivery, business growth and development.
Walfinch has 25 outlets nationwide that help a wide range of care clients, including elderly people and others with specialist care needs, to live their lives independently and on their own terms.
How does the Walfinch franchise business model work?
The Walfinch franchise model’s success can be attributed to two key factors: the company’s passion for care and its forward-thinking approach.
The domiciliary care agency uses technology to streamline most administrative tasks and takes new franchisees through rigorous expert training procedures (including systems training), ensuring business owners spend less time on the day-to-day tasks of running a franchise and more on building rewarding relationships with their clients and delivering a comprehensive range of services.
As well as being an innovative care industry leader, the Walfinch franchise is driven by its dedication to keeping families and communities supported through some of their most difficult times, providing peace of mind that their loved ones are being expertly cared for on an ongoing basis.
Where in the UK is Walfinch based?
Walfinch’s national support office is in London.
What type of franchisee is Walfinch looking to recruit?
Prospective franchisees must be driven by a desire to deliver the highest-quality levels of care, possess an enthusiasm to grow professionally and personally, be dedicated to their work and have a vision that complements Walfinch’s culture as a brand.
A Walfinch franchisee who puts in the work can usually expect revenue of £400,000 after two years – and the personal reward from supporting your own community is beyond price.

How in demand are the services provided by Walfinch?
Because the UK has an ageing population, the demand for care services exponentially surpasses supply year-round, meaning the size of the care market is growing.
According to data from Age UK, approximately four million older people (around 40 per cent of people aged 65 and over) have a limiting long-term illness or disability. This figure is predicted to increase to over six million by 2030.
Walfinch also offers care for people with specialist care needs, so there are a variety of business streams. There are always people who require care, and Walfinch does it with excellence.
