Finding the funds for your franchise investment

For many people wanting to start their own new business, one of the biggest hurdles is finding the money for their initial investment. However, what a lot of people may not know is that many high street banks are ready and willing to provide a huge helping hand.

As the economy aims to recover from the effects of the pandemic, HSBC UK has announced that they are launching a £500 million franchising fund to help give new business operators a kick-start. This is a significant boost from one of the country’s biggest high street banks, focused on the franchising industry to support small and medium enterprises across the UK.

Now more than ever, people are relying on entrepreneurs and business owners to help get the economy back on its feet. To meet the challenge, the franchising industry is rapidly growing with numbers at a record high. This is down to the expansion plans of existing franchises and a rise in younger people wanting to run their own businesses.

Franchise businesses now contribute an estimated £17 billion to the UK economy, according to figures published by the British Franchise Association (BFA). The recent support from HSBC will help to give a wide range of businesses more of an opportunity to flourish as franchising continues to be a popular option for entrepreneurs.

Franchising with SureCare

Franchising is so popular because it offers a quick and smart route to business. Starting up entirely on your own is a significant challenge. However, with the support of a franchisor like SureCare behind you, budding business owners can achieve their dreams of being their own boss and running their own operations. This is all thanks to our tried-and-tested business model along with decades of expertise working in the care industry.

Finding the funds for your initial investment might be tough, but this is where lenders come in. Here at SureCare, we have strong relationships with major high street banks, with HSBC being one of our preferred lenders. Many banks and lenders, like HSBC, have specific Franchising Division departments focused solely on helping franchise businesses like SureCare to offer advice, guidance and financial support to new entrepreneurs.

They can help a new franchisee by lending up to 70% of the total required investment for a SureCare Franchise. This means that budding business owners looking to join SureCare will only need a minimum cash investment of £25,000 – then banks can lend the remaining amount. With a business loan, new franchisees can secure a suitable investment that covers franchising fees and initial working capital to get a new business off the ground.

Why choose the home care industry?

There are many different sectors to start up your new business in, so choosing the right one is such a huge decision. If you want to operate in a future-proof sector that consistently makes a positive difference in people’s lives, working in home care might just be the right option for you.

SureCare franchisees provide vital care services to people in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Whether someone needs round-the-clock assistance, support for a disability or a few regular visits to help with housework, SureCare’s range of available services can cater to virtually anybody with a tailored care package.

What’s more, it’s not necessary to have any previous experience working in healthcare, as we provide full training and ongoing support. To become a SureCare franchisee, we mainly look for a few other qualities like dedication, hard work and strong management skills to ensure that you would be a great fit for our network of home care operators.
 

Over the last three decades, SureCare has become well established as one of the UK’s leading providers of quality home care. With the strength of our brand reputation behind you – as well as our franchise support team and business development managers – franchisees are safe in the knowledge that they’re making a sensible investment in an important industry.

SureCare Franchising makes business start-up easy

Starting a brand new business in the care sector has never been easier with franchising opportunities available across the UK. Find out how SureCare Franchising can help you take those first steps towards supporting people throughout your local community.

The care sector has faced significant pressures in recent years and especially over the last twelve months. With so many people wanting to help contribute towards post-COVID recovery efforts across the country, we’re looking to budding business owners to provide compassionate care services to those most in need of them.

As we face the prolonged effects of the coronavirus pandemic, local authorities and the NHS are dealing with a huge about of stress and pressure. Home care services from SureCare are helping to relieve some of that pressure by offering specialised care to people in the safety and comfort of their own homes.

Why invest in a SureCare franchise?

At SureCare, we have a proven home care business model that helps people in need of assistance to receive quality care at home. Services are completely tailored to the individual and carried out by experienced and qualified care workers thanks to our network of franchise operators.

By investing in a SureCare franchise, you can provide life-changing support to customers in your local area and give peace of mind every time. Our franchising package includes all of the essential training you’ll need, alongside ongoing advice and guidance to ensure your continued success.

You will be given exclusive rights to trade under our licences and branding, which carries instant credibility as a highly respected national care service provider. From there, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to manage your business in your own way, with our support available whenever you need it.
 

SureCare Franchising uses a straightforward process that’s easy to follow so you can get started with us as smoothly and as quickly as possible:

Meet

First things first – we look forward to kicking things off with an initial meeting. We’ve traditionally met prospective franchisees in person, inviting them to our Head Office in Chester. As working from home and video conference have become common parts of life over the last year, we’ve also adapted our initial discovery sessions so we can meet remotely. This makes our first meeting much easier and can be carried out no matter where you are in the country.

As our network expands, SureCare Franchising has recently established new premises in Lytham St Anne’s. We are hopeful that this will serve as an additional meeting place in the future, so prospective franchisees can visit us in person when the situation allows.

Discuss

Once we’ve met with you, we aim to build up a strong relationship as quickly as possible. This allows the team at SureCare Franchising to get to know you, your previous experiences and your aspirations for running a business in care. It’s also your chance to ask us questions about how a typical SureCare franchise operates and discover what support is available.

It’s not necessary for our franchisees to have any background working in the care sector at all. What we’re most interested in seeing from you is the ability to demonstrate a strong work ethic and the dedication required for operating your own business, effectively managing staff and taking your own initiatives.

Plan

The take-away from our initial discussions will be to plan our next steps together. You’ll need a business plan before going any further and we can work with you to help put one together. Your business plan will be your initial roadmap, highlighting the services you plan to provide, the people you aim to serve and the goals you hope to reach.

With business plan in hand, the next major hurdle will be securing the finances for your initial investment. We estimate that new franchisees will require an investment of £70,000 to £95,000 to cover your franchising fee and initial working capital. If you need to rely on a business loan to achieve this, SureCare has close relationships with various high street banks who will be able to support you.

Join

Once you’re happy with our franchising proposition and your plan of action, it’s time to get stuck in! We’ll formally welcome you to the SureCare network and start turning those plans into a reality. From securing premises to recruiting staff, the next few months will be a whirlwind of preparations and organisation.

At this stage you’ll also undergo a rigorous two-week long induction and training course. In the past we’ve done this at our state-of-the-art training facilities in our Chester Head Office. At present, however, we are conducting induction sessions remotely whilst ensuring the highest level of quality training and care compliance so you’re suitably prepared for launch day.

Launch

Finally, the time has come to officially launch your new business and reach out to customers in your local territory. You and your team can begin providing non-regulated support until your CQC registration is complete. From then, you’ll also be able to deliver personal care services to enrich the lives of your customers.

We don’t just shake hands and walk off into the sunset, though. You’ll regularly be in touch with your dedicated business development managers to discuss your business’ progress. Plus, the team at SureCare Franchising is only a call or email away whenever you have any questions or need to rely on us for a little extra support.
 

If you’re interested in getting started with your own new business in the care sector, get in touch with SureCare Franchising about one of our potential franchising opportunities today.

Call us on 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk to request our franchising information pack and take the first step towards becoming your own boss and running your own home care business with SureCare.

 

Join SureCare’s new franchising discovery sessions online

Owning and running your own business is a dream for many people, but it’s easy to be put off by a lack of experience. Starting a new venture on your own is always going to be a tough ask. So why not rely on the expertise and guidance of a franchisor?

There are so many things to consider when you decide to take on a new business venture:

  • How much will you need to invest?
  • What premises and resources will you need?
  • How many staff will you need to recruit? And how will you train them?
  • How will you promote your new business?
  • What are your expectations for growth?

…and much more besides.

It can all feel so overwhelming that, whether you’re an individual or a couple of partners looking to go into business together, it becomes a struggle to even know where to begin.

This is where franchising can prove to be a beneficial solution. Franchisors, like SureCare, support budding business owners by providing a launchpad for setting up and running their own operations. As a franchisor, we have decades of specialist knowledge and experience in how to run a business in the home care sector, allowing us to develop and refine our business framework.

SureCare has helped dozens of franchisees across the country to utilise our tried-and-tested business model, receive comprehensive training and advice, and experience considerable growth in the market. This, in turn, allows our franchise owners to spend more time focusing on their goals and delivering quality services to people in their local communities.

Freedom and flexibility

When it comes to starting your own new business, many people choose to do it for the freedom to have their own direction and make their own decisions. For that reason, it’s common for entrepreneurs to be a little hesitant towards franchising in case the franchisor demands that certain processes must be done their way.

We can’t speak for every franchisor in the world, but here at SureCare we promise a high level of flexibility in running your business your own way. Other than ensuring you adhere to care quality compliance guidelines, SureCare allows franchisees to chart their own course in providing as many different services to people in their own defined geographical territory.

This flexibility allows operators to employ their own staff members and set their own targets for revenue and growth. In addition, many of our existing franchisees have also reached out to local charities and organisations to lend a hand with fundraising and voluntary work. With a SureCare franchise, you’re in complete control of your own destiny.

Cooperation and reputation

Whilst SureCare allows you the opportunity to manage your business how you want, you’re never completely alone. Sometimes you may need someone to turn to for specialist advice or assistance in recruitment and marketing. This is where operating your new business as a franchise comes with unique benefits.

Right from the very start, our franchising support team are always on hand to provide help in all aspects of business. You’ll be put in contact with dedicated business development managers to guide you in making the right decisions for your business. And if you need a bit of refresher training, accounting support or promotional materials in future, SureCare Head Office is just a call or email away.

Starting a new business as a franchise also allows you to benefit from SureCare’s brand. As one of the leading and most trusted names in home care provisions nationwide, our strong reputation boosts your business and drives customer engagement from day one.
 

If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business – either alone or with a partner – we’d love to speak to you about a potential franchising opportunity at SureCare.

No previous care sector experience is necessary, as we can provide our industry knowledge and expertise. All you really need is to demonstrate the commitment and passion to run your own business that will benefit the lives of people in your local area.
 

For further information on franchising and to arrange a discovery session with SureCare, give us a call on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and let’s get the ball rolling!

 

SureCare’s ambitious growth plans for 2021

While countless business across various sectors face significant challenges in the post-pandemic world, the care industry is witnessing a huge rise in demand. Here at SureCare, we want to join forces with entrepreneurs to help expand vital care provisions across the country.

In recent years, demand for home care services has been consistently growing for a number of reasons. Not only does home care help to accommodate the care needs of an increasingly ageing population, it has also quickly established itself as a preferable alternative to receiving support in a retirement or residential care setting.

The recent coronavirus pandemic has further accelerated the need for domiciliary care services throughout the UK. Unlike many other businesses sadly suffering from the economic impacts of COVID-19, care providers like SureCare are bucking the trend and looking to further expand our reach to people in need.

Our plans to expand

SureCare has ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond. We presently provide a wide range of remote care services, carried out by dedicated care teams in over 50 local areas across the UK. These operations are managed and maintained by our network of hard-working franchisees.

Over the next 24 months, it is our aim to expand the SureCare network to 100 franchise operations. This will allow us to deliver essential care services to people in the comfort of their own homes. Of course, we can’t achieve this alone, so we’re reaching out to entrepreneurs and budding business owners looking to make a new start with their own brand new venture.

Franchising with SureCare

It might feel like a strange time to consider starting a new business, but SureCare is able to offer franchise opportunities in an industry that’s been proven to resist the effects of a recession and a pandemic. For many people, plans to begin a new venture have been put on hold over the last year. Others may have found themselves looking for a new direction for their careers, even thinking about becoming their own boss.

Whatever your circumstances, if you’re interested in managing your own business and supporting people in your local community, SureCare is ready and raring to help you. By franchising, you can have the opportunity to start up and manage your own business whilst also relying on the support and backing of a recognised and trusted national brand.
 

SureCare’s Franchise Recruitment Manager, Josh Farrer, states: “For almost 30 years, SureCare has been one of the UK’s leading home care providers. Thanks to the strength of our brand, our franchise support team and effective business development, franchisees can be sure they’re making a sensible investment in an ever-growing industry.”

For further information on joining SureCare, or to arrange an initial franchising discovery session, call us on 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk with your franchising request.

 

Make a positive start this year with your own new business

So 2021 has arrived, but it hasn’t necessarily got off to the start we all wanted. As the country faces a fresh national lockdown to combat the spread of coronavirus, it gives us time to pause and reflect on what plans we want to achieve for the future.

While remaining at home, many people will naturally want to take stock of their lives and ponder their career plans for the year ahead and beyond. In particular, workers placed on furlough and those recently made redundant are likely to wonder about what life has in store for them next.

It can be daunting to think about starting a brand new business at the best of time, so it probably seems like a strange step to take right now. However, with a COVID-19 vaccination program currently underway across the country, this can be the perfect time to start planning so you can take control of your future.

Another big concern for entrepreneurs considering a new business venture comes down to support. It can be especially difficult to keep on top of everything if you’re going it alone, so it’s often useful to have the help of a business partner or assistance from a wider network of people.

That’s exactly where franchising can benefit you, and SureCare is ready and raring to help you in your journey.

Franchising in the home care sector

Long before the current pandemic, we’ve seen a rising demand for personal care services in the home. With an ageing and growing population, more and more people are in need of assistance, particularly in later life. And what better place to receive care than in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes?

Healthcare and social care have been firmly under the spotlight in recent months. As a high priority service in constant demand, home care operators have the unique benefit of being resistant to the effects of economic recession or a pandemic.

As vaccines are rolled out across the country and we slowly recover from a tumultuous year, many people will continue to rely on additional care and assistance in their daily lives. Alongside this, running your own business allows you the freedom to expand your service offering and charitable efforts to support your community further.

Why choose SureCare?

Now in our 27th year, SureCare has grown to become one of the most recognised and well-respected names in home care provisions across the UK. Our expertise not only covers multiple forms of personal care, but also includes professional business development and management to assist franchise operators up and down the country.

Whether you have experience in the care sector or not, our franchising team can provide business support, training and materials every step of the way. All you really need is a keen focus and determination for operating your very own business.

If you’ve been thinking about making a fresh start in 2021 and want to decide if franchising with SureCare is right for you, you can book a discovery call with us for a detailed discussion. Here, you’ll get to chat to key members of our franchising team about your goals, the care market and how we can help you to get started.
 

Call us on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk to request further information or enquire about setting up a franchising discovery session with SureCare.

 

Looking ahead to a prosperous 2021 with SureCare Franchising

2020 has been a strange and eventful year for everybody and the same goes for all of us at SureCare Franchising. Here we take a quick look back at how we’ve changed and how we can ensure a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021.

As the New Year approaches, it’s normally the time to reflect on the last year to take stock of everything that’s happened. For many people, however, 2020 will be a year that most will want to forget. The world has faced significant challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and our collective responses to it.

One of the key areas of concern has centred on social care services. It’s been a particularly demanding time for care workers up and down the country, to ensure that essential services continue in a safe and Covid-secure manner.

We’re so proud of our franchise operators and their care teams who have risen to the almighty challenge this year. They’ve shown dedication and determination to assist their service users through thick and thin, and we would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to each and every one of them.

We’ll continue to be on hand to support our franchisees across the country over this festive period and into the New Year.

Changes at Head Office

Like so many businesses across the country, our franchising team have had to significantly adapt how we work in response to the various restrictions and advice over the last twelve months. We’ve been getting used to remote working and offering our support and training over the phone and via video calls.

The disruption to our process hasn’t got in the way of reaching out to new franchisees, however. We’re pleased to announce that 2020 saw us welcome several new franchise operators to our network, ready and raring to provide essential care services to people in their area.

As we were unable to meet with our new franchisees in person or invite them to our Head Office training facilities, a lot of our meetings and training sessions have taken place over video conferencing! At first, we were a little concerned about losing the warmth of our typical face-to-face meetings, but we quickly found that we could communicate efficiently and effectively despite the distance.

This year, we also expanded our franchising team by welcoming our new Franchise Onboarding Manager, Naz. He has settled into our team wonderfully and assisted many of our new franchise operators joining SureCare this year. Find out more about Naz from our blog here.
 

2021 is already shaping up to be an important year for the care sector. If you’ve been thinking of making a new start with your own business, get in touch with SureCare to find out more about how franchising can help you support your local community.

Simply drop us a line on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and one of our franchising team will be in touch.

 

Help the post-COVID recovery with your own home care franchise

After a difficult year, recent reports on various COVID vaccines in development are helping to provide a bit of light at the end of the tunnel. If your plans of starting up a new business have been put on hold this year, early 2021 is looking quite positive for entrepreneurs in the care sector.

2020 has been a difficult year for all sorts of business. Various lockdown restrictions and economic struggles have created a lot of uncertainty for business owners and the people they employ. Those thinking of starting up a brand new business venture this year may have been easily deterred from putting their plans into action.

However, the new year hopes to bring a bit of stability back to the economic climate, making it the perfect time to start thinking about pursuing those dreams of becoming your own boss. What’s more, by choosing a franchise business, the process is streamlined and allows you to rely on additional support and expertise every step of the way.

The care sector’s role during the pandemic

Unlike many other jobs, care and support services have consistently been in high demand throughout 2020. For the more vulnerable people in our society, regular support has been utterly essential during the pandemic, with professionals in social care regarded as key workers.

Whilst the rollout of a vaccine in early 2021 will help to bring the country out of the severe restrictions we’ve all faced, it will be a long road to recovery. Care workers up and down the country will continue to play a vital role in keeping loved ones safe and well for years to come.

On top of this, our ageing population means many of us are living longer. To help people maintain their independence in the comfort of their own homes, elderly home care services have already been on the rise for several years, and that trend is also set to continue for decades.

Why franchise with SureCare?

Starting up a new business from scratch is always going to be a big challenge. Starting up in the home care also comes with unique requirements to ensure the safety, security and efficacy of services for the people who most need them. This is where franchising with an already established provider can help you out massively.

SureCare has been a leading name in home care throughout the UK for over a quarter of a century. Since 1994, we’ve expanded our reach across the country thanks to our growing network of franchisees. These franchise operators manage their own teams of care workers to support their local communities, serving people of all ages and abilities.

As a family business first and foremost, SureCare fosters a culture of strong family values to support our customers and franchise owners alike. This allows us to help new franchisees feel a warm welcome from the start, alongside offering them our guidance, knowledge and expertise in the home care sector throughout their business development.

Get started with a discovery session

Previous experience of working in the care sector is not necessary for starting a new business when you franchise with SureCare. We assess potential new franchisees on a range of other factors, including their passion and determination to help others, particularly during the toughest of situations. Our franchising support team will always be available to provide professional training and share specialist knowledge with you and your new team.

When you’re ready to get started with a SureCare franchise, we can arrange to kick things off with a discovery session over the phone or a video call. Here, we’ll get a chance to find out all about you and introduce you to the wide range of services you can provide. Through this, you’ll understand how your business can benefit from multiple revenue streams and experience exceptional growth.

Once we get to know each other in a discovery session, we can then decide upon next steps for moving forward with your very own SureCare franchise in your preferred territory. With the assistance of our dedicated business development managers, your new business can be up and running in a matter of weeks, allowing you to start making a positive impact in your community as soon as possible.
 

If your dreams of becoming your own boss have been stuck on hold this year, now is the perfect time to begin thinking about operating your own business in home care and providing vital assistance as the country begins to recover from a turbulent 2020.

To find out more information and book a franchising discovery session with SureCare, call us on 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk and take the first step towards making a positive difference for people in your community.

 

New SureCare operations in Oldham & Tameside

The latest franchisee to join the SureCare network has teamed up with one of our existing operators, ready to provide new home care services to more people in Greater Manchester.

SureCare Oldham & Tameside is currently in the initial stages of becoming a fully-fledged branch. In the coming weeks and months, the branch will be able to hit the ground running to provide vital assistance to people across Oldham, Tameside and the surrounding areas.

Leading the way at the branch is new franchisee Hariom Bhatt. In setting up and running operations at SureCare Oldham & Tameside, Hariom will also be assisted by an existing SureCare franchisee. Krunal Makwana has been trading with SureCare Leicester since 2018 and will now bring his experience and expertise to Oldham & Tameside as a second franchise.

Hariom will take the lead at SureCare Oldham & Tameside, receiving support from our head office operations team, alongside help from his fellow franchisee. Krunal’s success with SureCare Leicester is notable, as the branch has seen impressive growth in a relatively short time and even continues to grow under the difficult circumstances of this year.

With business registration and a new local office base under his belt, Hariom is currently in the process of completing his 2-week induction course with SureCare. The next step will be for him to conduct interviews for a new registered care manager and to apply for CQC registration in the coming weeks.

Huge potential in the home care sector

Both Hariom and Krunal realise that operating their own business in home care presents them with a unique opportunity to grow in a lucrative market. The UK population is expected to increase year-on-year over the coming decades, with many of us living longer and requiring assistance later on in life.

What’s more, nine out of ten people would prefer receiving care in their own home rather than moving into a residential care setting. This has created a boom in the home care sector with services now consistently in high demand. That level of demand is sure to grow, alongside the growth of our ageing population, increasing the need for quality home care providers across the country.

Funding from national and local government has also been on the rise to meet the growing demands. Local councils have spent almost £18 billion per year on adult social care in recent years and this is also expected to grow in future. Home care is one of the biggest areas that’s expected to see significant investment in the years to come, allowing providers to operate in a recession-resilient sector.

You can call our Head Office on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and we can arrange to set up a discovery session with you over the phone or via video call.

 

Newly registered home care services from SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees

Home care provider SureCare has recently arrived in the Calderdale and Kirklees area to provide quality home care services to people in their own homes at a time when it’s never been more important.

SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees is ready and raring to go, lending a hand to vulnerable people across the local community. Now fully registered with the Care Quality Commission – the independent regulator for health and social care in England – they will be able to provide personal care to individuals at home.

Business owner Parjeet Kaur Dua and registered care manager Rachel Kershaw are now on the lookout for passionate and enthusiastic care workers to join their team. They have been able to create capacity for around 20-30 jobs to meet growing care demands over the winter period and beyond.

SureCare will offer much more than typical elderly home care, with a complete range of services available to people of all ages and abilities. From providing childcare to supporting for adults with physical or learning difficulties, the team is committed to delivering flexible care that is as compassionate as it is professional.

Additionally, they will be able to provide tailored care packages based on an individual’s needs. This could include regular short check-ups, longer appointments or even a 24-hour live-in care service. Whatever assistance is required and whenever it’s needed, SureCare go above and beyond to offer the best possible support.

Owner Parjeet has spoken of her delight that SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees is now registered with CQC.

“Our aim is to provide support to our service users in a person-centred way, which has positive outcomes for them, actively engaging them in their participation.”

She continued: “To ensure that our service users receive the very best care, we will regularly review our operations and actively seek the feedback of our carers and service users, their family and friends; ensuring that any concerns are promptly acted upon.”

To help them in their mission, Parjeet and Rachel are embarking on a fresh recruitment drive to find compassionate people wanting to make a real, positive difference in their community. No previous experience in the care sector is necessary, as successful candidates will be given full training for the role.

The team at SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees are largely interested in applicants who can demonstrate the dedication and compassion needed to help others at all times. With these exciting job opportunities available, SureCare hopes to attract new care workers from all walks of life, especially at this time of uncertainty surrounding the jobs market.

Parjeet states: “We endeavour to provide each of our service users with a package of care that is based entirely around their health and wellbeing preferences. We also work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals to ensure that their care is holistic and comprehensive in its approach. Our aim is to maximise our service users’ sense of independence and reach any goals they wish to achieve.”

“We are dedicated and committed to providing our service users with exceptional quality care and are eager to welcome new service users on board.” With her belief that “independence never grows old”, Parjeet and her team are sure to fulfil their mission in providing the best quality home care in their community.

If you’re looking for high quality personal home care service for yourself or a loved one, or you have what it takes to provide daily support to the most vulnerable in the community, SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees is happy to have a chat with you about your queries.
 

You can call 01484 482 537 or email enquiries@surecarecalderdale.co.uk to speak with the SureCare Calderdale & Kirklees team, or visit www.surecare.co.uk/calderdale for more information.

Discover SureCare’s unique business model

If you’ve chosen to franchise with an existing company to start your own new business, there will be many things to consider next. Ideally, you’ll want to join a franchisor with a unique business model that helps you to grow a successful and positive business.

Operating in the home care market, SureCare offers one of the most effective ways to reach out and have a positive impact on your local community. What’s more, our range of available services sets us apart from other home care providers, allowing franchisees to start growing their business from day one.

When you start a new business in home care, your first priority is to become registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the independent regulator for care services throughout England. Unfortunately, CQC registration can take approximately 8-12 weeks to complete, effectively preventing you from providing services for the first few months of your business.

To help bridge that gap, therefore, SureCare operators can rely on a suite of non-regulated services to assist people in other ways throughout the local community. What’s more, many of our unregulated services are often in high demand, so you can ensure your business gets off the ground running.

What are unregulated services?

Unlike personal care where services are focused on an individual’s health and wellbeing, unregulated services aim to provide a helping hand for domestic tasks and additional chores. Your team of care workers can carry out general cleaning jobs around somebody’s home, including dusting, vacuuming, washing the dishes and emptying the bins.

Outside of the home, you can also help your clients by running errands to pick up prescriptions or do the weekly shop. In fact, our shopping service has become one of SureCare’s most popular features in recent months. By carrying out a client’s weekly shop on their behalf, SureCare teams across the country have greatly helped many older or vulnerable clients who’ve been isolating at home.

The range of unregulated services is expansive and continues to grow as we discuss new ideas with our service users and care teams. Your team can also assist with things like garden maintenance, light handiwork around the home and providing companionship to those living alone. This is particularly useful to provide a sense of familiarity and comfort during visits from a gas engineer or plumber.

Additional streams of revenue

It’s not just older people who can benefit from our additional services. Your new business will be able to provide facilities for youngsters to put the minds of busy parents at ease. From babysitting services to offering a mobile crèche for weddings and corporate events, your care team can help to keep the little ones entertained while the grown-ups are otherwise occupied.

SureCare franchisees can also work with and assist other local care providers to ensure that the most vulnerable people in the community are well cared for. This means potentially offering staffing solutions to nearby care homes at times when they may be short staffed, which can also help you with another source of income.

Many of our existing franchise operators have also had the freedom to focus on local charities and organisations near and dear to them. From food banks to homeless shelters, you and your workforce can volunteer some time to help enrich the lives of people in your community and get the word out about SureCare at the same time.
