Our proud history
It all began in 2006 when Nicholas Wood was working at a Special Educational Needs School, in a post 16 unit. He became aware of the difficulties parents were having to find suitable adult placements for their children when they had to leave full-time education. Over a few drinks, he put some ideas to Silena, of how he thought they could improve the lives of those individuals living with a learning disability. Johanna, Nicholas’ wife, and Feliciano, Silena’s husband joined in and brought motivation and common sense to the project. Although Nicholas’ and Johanna’s backgrounds were in the field of education and administration, the move to being care providers, seemed an obvious choice, and so Walc (Wood Autistic Living & Care) was created
In March 2008 Walc opened its doors to its first client and in quick succession came the others. The company has now enjoyed 11 happy years, caring for some very special individuals and continues to do so. With every year improving on our service and achieving continuing good results from CQC.

The leadership team at Walc discusses what care means to them and how Walc is changing the way the world looks at the full spectrum of Autism
Care has always been a very big part of my life and so has my interest in technology, it is important to me that the care home and staff are brought into the digital age, allowing the business to grow alongside our understanding on how to better care for individuals with complex needs.
For me as the Manager of Walc, care is about making sure that our clients receive top quality support from well trained and competent staff. Who with encouragement and mutual respect, help them navigate their way through life.
By involving the community and being more visible at local events we can educate the general public in understanding and accepting the world of autism.
