In 1976, a group of people had a vision of creating a centre in Whitworth whose sole purpose was to care for local people, on a day-to-day basis, who were experiencing problems of looking after themselves. As a result of which Whitworth Elderly and Disabled Care Trust opened the doors of Sunnybank Day Care Centre.

Building on the success of the Day Care Centre, in 1986 the Trust opened Sunnyside Rest Home and by using a policy of recruiting well-trained staff from the local area, it has become home from home for the residents who live there.

In 1993, the Trust became a charity, (Registered Charity No. 1033520) and in 2007 successfully gained the Investors in People Award.  In 2010 Sunnyside achieved a 3* Excellent rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

In 2010 the Trust was renamed Whitworth Care Trust.
