About Woodleigh Healthcare

Founded in 2014, Woodleigh Healthcare is a specialist CQC-registered care agency in Surrey and Leicester, providing home care and supported living for vulnerable adults with mental health needs, challenging behaviours, learning disabilities, recovering from substance/alcohol misuse and other complicated needs.

Our holistic approach to care intimately involves the extended families of the care recipient along with a network of social workers, psychiatrists, GPS, care workers and advocates. We aim to cultivate independence and confidence using a tailored amount of support, ranging from only a single hour a week to intensive 1:1 24-hour support.

The team behind our care agency in Surrey

We hand-pick our nurses are carers not just on training and experience, but capacity for compassion and dedication to helping those in need.

Woodleigh Healthcare then builds upon this foundation with a full induction and client-specific training package via our in-house training background, which is oversees by qualified nurses with a critical care background.

We believe that the role of a care goes beyond simply ‘providing care', which can be refused to little more than ticking boxes on a checklist. Our stance is that the carer needs to contribute to the quality of life of both the care recipient and their families, and this informs our decisions when we select staff whose skills and experience are best suited to the client.

The ethos behind our care agency in Surrey

Staff will only enter a client's property and their room within said property with the express consent of the care recipient or their guardian.


Staff will respect the client's right to avoid interacting with or being interrupted by the staff member when, for examples, they are entertaining a visitor or engaged in intimate activity. However, the safety of the client is paramount at all times.

Our staff consider themselves guests in the client's home and will act accordingly, respecting the client's private possessions at all times.



Staff will respect the client's right to make telephone calls and conduct conversations in full privacy without being overheard or observed by the staff member.


We ensure that service records are only seen by those with a legitimate need to know the information held within.


Clients who require assistance with intimate tasks such as dressing, bathing and toileting, will be helped as far as possible within the wishes of the client by a staff member of their choice and, if desired, of a sex of their choice.
