a few words about us


Walnut Care was founded in 2002 by David and Melanie Weatherley. Through their determination and guidance, and with the unwavering support of their growing family of carers, this tiny seedling has, itself, grown to become a healthy, fruitful tree.

Melanie’s father was cared for in a friendly, nurturing environment at the end of his life. Her aunt was not so fortunate. These experiences inspired Melanie and her husband David to change careers from the corporate world to the care sector.

Their aim has always been to provide care and support that works for each individual, finding out what adds sparkle to each person’s life is an important as knowing what their care needs are.

Everyone is important to us. Wherever you are, whatever the weather, our team will always be there to provide you with the care you need.

We’re passionate about care and that’s why we don’t just care about our service users, we care about the welfare of our staff too.

We actively encourage the personal development of all our staff. The dedication of our care and support workers knows no bounds, so it’s only right that we invest our time and resources into them.” Melanie Weatherley

Over fifteen years on, we are proud to have watched our vision become a reality.
