New franchise owner for SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe

SureCare is delighted to introduce the latest franchisee to join our network. We welcome Jonathan Woodcock, who is now the proud owner of existing provider SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe.

While the business is under new ownership, life goes on as usual for the Charnwood & Rushcliffe team, who operate out of their offices based in Sileby, Leicestershire. Jonathan now leads the team alongside the business’ long-standing Registered Care Manager, Sandra Strong.

SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe was listed for sale last year, but we were inundated with lots of interest from new potential buyers interested in keeping the amazing team and their care services active in the region. Following meetings with many suitable candidates, we felt that Jonathan was the perfect choice to become the business’ new owner.

About SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe

Reaching out to residents in their specific territory in the Midlands, SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe carries out a wide variety of care services. These include:

  • Care for adults over 65
  • Care for adults under 65
  • Dementia care
  • Physical disability care
  • Learning disability care
  • Care for eating disorders
  • Care for mental health conditions

The provider undergoes routine inspections, carried out by our industry regulator the Care Quality Commission. Following the latest inspection in June last year, SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe was rated ‘Good’ in all areas.

With thousands of hours of safe and professional home care services helping people across Loughborough and the surrounding areas, we’re certain that Jonathan has the enthusiasm and drive to get stuck in and keep up the team’s brilliant standards.

SureCare’s Franchise Recruitment Manager, Josh Farrer said: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to the franchise network. He impressed us greatly and was the perfect choice for us to become the new owner of SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe.”

He went on to say: “The business has a great reputation and has been built on providing exceptional care services across the area. We look forward to watching their successes develop under Jonathan’s ownership for many years to come.”

Why choose SureCare when starting a business in home care?

Here at SureCare Franchising, we’ve helped many new business owners to set up and run their own operations, so they can bring home care services to people in their local communities.

For over 25 years, SureCare has been a leading figure in home care provisions for people of all ages and abilities across the country. Since starting life in 1994 as a local care provider in Chester, we’ve expanded on our knowledge, business acumen and shared experiences to bring our unique brand of support to other communities through our network of franchise operators.

SureCare is a family owned business with family values strongly at the heart of everything we do. We strive to provide supportive care and assistance for every one of our service users as if they were members of our own family, which helps to reassure those very close to them.

We presently operate in over 50 territories throughout the UK, and we’re continually reaching out to more areas with new franchisees joining our family all the time. It is thanks to our franchise operators that SureCare is fast becoming one of the country’s most recognised and reputable names in home care.

Joining the home care industry

There is currently a massive demand for more care providers throughout the UK because of our ageing population. Not only are more of us living longer, many people also want the freedom of enjoying their independence at home. Domiciliary home care allows people – typically older people and those with serious health conditions – to continue living at home as they receive vital support and assistance.

Some of the new franchisees that have joined SureCare in the past have had little previous experience of the care sector, but have been highly passionate about making a positive difference in people’s lives. Whatever your background, you will receive extensive training and support from our Head Office team when you franchise with SureCare and begin your own home care business.

We’re interested in people capable of showing the right levels of dedication, drive and determination, alongside a commitment to care and compassion for others. With our franchising support, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge to run your operations and manage a team of care workers delivering the best quality of service, whether you’ve worked in healthcare before or not.

Why SureCare?

Domiciliary care isn’t the only service that SureCare offers to customers, though. Over the years, we have developed an extensive and flexible suite of services, including: live-in care, childcare and babysitting, dementia care, and even support for those with disabilities and complex personal needs.

Not only does this allow SureCare teams to reach out to more people around the country, it also means that multiple revenue streams are available to your business. This tried-and-tested business model has even helped some of our most recent franchisees to achieve a £1 million turnover within their first year.

Overall, SureCare is proud to be a people focused franchise, with proven systems that help you to grow a substantial and profitable business that provides quality home care and support for those who most need it. And just in case you needed any more convincing, SureCare is a proud member of the British Franchise Association, the UK Home Care Association and several of our franchisees received the Top 20 Award 2019 from Homecare.co.uk
 

If you’re looking to start your own business in the home care sector, speak to SureCare today about a potential franchising opportunity that can help you to make a real difference in people’s lives.

SureCare’s latest franchisees come to Batley & Wakefield

We’re excited to welcome two new franchise owners to the SureCare family. Following their one week induction course at our Chester head office, they’ll be bringing vital home care services to people in Batley & Wakefield.

Securing their exclusive territory within West Yorkshire, long-standing friends Wajjad Hussain and Sajjad Haider will lead the way for a team of care workers operating in Wakefield, Batley and the surrounding areas. Both gents come from backgrounds in delivering exceptional customer service, and their dedication to service users’ needs will be the key to their business’ success.

As more and more people across the country are turning toward receiving care at home, SureCare Batley & Wakefield will prove to be a vital lifeline for many in the area. Whether an older person in need of a helping hand, or somebody living with a disability requiring special assistance, this new SureCare team will strive to provide support right across the community.

Meet Wajjad and Sajjad

Both new franchisees are highly experienced and have achieved great successes in their respective careers through hard work and perseverance. Sajjad comes from a rewarding background in education, working within the tuition industry. He has also co-owned a highly reputable education centre in West Yorkshire alongside his sister, aiming to help people in the local community.

Wajjad has also experienced local triumphs in his ownership of a fully managed fitness centre in West Yorkshire, which boast more than 1,000 active members. Additionally, he has a strong background in digital marketing and this will be a crucial asset when advertising online and reaching out to new customers in the area.

Head office support

Just as with any of the franchisees in our network, Wajjad and Sajjad will receive the full support of our head office team as they progress their business. They’ll also benefit from regular interactions with two dedicated business development managers. These BDMs will be on hand to help with growth at SureCare Batley & Wakefield along with ensuring regulatory compliance with the CQC.

This week, both Wajjad and Sajjad have visited our head offices in Chester to attend a week-long induction course. Here we rigorously put them through their paces to bring them up to speed with the high quality standards that SureCare is renowned for up and down the country.


SureCare’s franchise recruitment manager, Josh Farrer, welcomes the new operators saying: “The team and I are delighted to welcome Sajjad and Wajjad to the SureCare family. I have spent a lot of time with them both recently and I knew from our initial meeting that they would be a perfect fit for our brand.”

“Both are already successful in their own right, but they made it clear to me at the beginning that they were keen to take on a new challenge within the care industry. Everyone at SureCare HQ will provide them with exceptional training and ongoing support to not only help them establish their new business but to ensure the continued growth and success in the future.”

New operations start up in SureCare Wandsworth

The newest franchisee to join the SureCare family is getting ready to start bringing excellent home care services to people across the London Borough of Wandsworth.

New franchise owner Ishtiaq Shah joined SureCare earlier this month and is ready to begin overseeing operations for his own home care business. Like other SureCare franchisees, Ishtiaq will be supported by our team and wider network, but will be able to bring his own approach to offering care services in his local territory.

Over the coming weeks and months, he’ll be making considerable strides towards establishing his new branch of SureCare Wandsworth, building a team of care workers and reaching out to new customers in the area requiring services. Our business development managers will be with him every step of the way to ensure his new operations get off to a flying start.

About Ishtiaq

Having been self-employed for all of his working life, Ishtiaq is no stranger to the determination and dedication needed to manage his own business. His background has predominantly been in agriculture, cultivating land and growing crops with a large number of employees.

His lifelong experience has allowed him to develop the skills for managing a large team effectively and being able to deliver the right results at the right time. These transferrable skills will prove valuable in Ishtiaq’s running of his own home care business, so that his team of care workers always deliver a top quality service whenever and wherever it’s needed.

Franchising with SureCare

One of the key aspects of joining SureCare is that Ishtiaq and his team will benefit from a high level of support. SureCare’s operations team will be on hand to help out every step of the way, from an initial induction course to ongoing training and business development.

Thanks to SureCare’s tried and tested franchising model, we’ve helped many operators to set up and run their own businesses over the last 25 years. We’re extremely excited to see what the future holds for Ishtiaq and SureCare Wandsworth, and we look forward to supporting his journey with us.
 

If you’re thinking of starting your own business that makes a real difference in people’s lives, a franchising opportunity with SureCare could be right up your street. Call our team on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk to get the conversation started and see how we can help you.

 

Now is a great time to start a home care business

The care industry is currently booming and the next decade looks likely to be one of the most important periods for home care provisions across the UK.

There is growing demand for care services right now and the healthcare industry is often under pressure to provide the right people in the right places with appropriate care. That’s why the care sector is such an attractive area for those looking to start their own new business, particularly domiciliary care for older people.

Even though our population is growing quite gradually, increases in life expectancy mean that many people are living longer now than at any other time. By the year 2030, therefore, it’s predicted that around 20% of all adults will be over the age of 65 – that’s 1 in 5 of us. This figure is also estimated to reach 25% – 1 in 4 UK adults – before 2050.

Where to begin?

If you’ve never run your own business before or don’t know much about the care industry, it can be a very daunting prospect to even consider starting a business. This is where a franchise operator like SureCare can help, with the offer of a tried and tested franchise model and professional support available at all times.

Every member of the SureCare Franchising team has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the care industry, allowing them to support new franchisees. All you need is to be able to demonstrate the willingness, compassion and drive to deliver outstanding levels of care to service users and to flourish as a business.

Investments and returns

Compared to other franchise businesses, the initial investment required is relatively small. Additionally, SureCare has long-standing relationships with a vast range of major high street banks and lenders, who can offer suitable business loans to new franchisees.

From a modest investment, SureCare franchisees have demonstrated the ability to grow rapidly in a fairly short time. Many of our operators have achieved a turnover of £1 million after the first year. This is thanks in part to the ability to benefit from multiple revenue streams.

While domiciliary care for over 65s accounts for around two-thirds of the UK’s home care market, there are many other form of care that SureCare franchisees can provide. With our range of services including childcare, dementia care and even live-in care packages, vulnerable people of all ages and abilities can rely on professional assistance for as little or as long as needed.
 

To find out how franchising in the home care sector can get your 2020 off to a flying start, get in touch with SureCare. Call 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk for further information.

 

Reflecting on a successful 2019 for SureCare Franchising

This year marked SureCare’s 25th year in business and what better way to celebrate than to welcome several new franchisees to our growing family. Just before we wave goodbye to 2019, today we take a look back at one of our most successful years to date.

Over the last twelve months, our services have spread further throughout the country to reach more communities and more people in need of care at home. From new franchisees opening new branches, to extended marketing efforts from existing operators, SureCare has continued to make a name for itself as one of the UK’s leading home care providers today.

There are now over 50 SureCare franchise operations up and down the land and 2019 saw some of our latest additions start their journeys with us.

New franchise operators

From the beginning of the year, the head office team has been meeting with and training new franchisees as they settle into their new premises. These operators now manage their own local care teams and provide essential care to service users wherever they are.

New branches that opened this year include those in Central Cheshire, Derby, Stockport & Tameside, Peterborough, Ealing & Hounslow, Luton, and Halifax & Huddersfield. All of our new franchisees are now delivering completely tailored care packages within their territories, bringing SureCare’s unique services to more people than ever before.

And that’s not all. We’re already gathering speed meeting with new business owners looking to franchise with SureCare in 2020. Things are looking positive for the New Year and we can’t wait to meet many new care teams over the next twelve months too!

Other successes this year

It isn’t just our new recruits that have captured our attention this year, though. Many of our existing franchise operators have experienced lots of success stories throughout 2019. We shared in some of our most recent triumphs at this year’s annual conference in April and we’re looking forward to meeting up again next Spring as well.

September saw our Shropshire operators celebrating a milestone 20 years in business. As fate would have it, the results of their most recent CQC inspection came in just before the anniversary, giving the SureCare Shropshire team double cause for celebration with the best possible rating of ‘Outstanding’.

Another of our longest standing franchises had some big news this year too. Over at SureCare Birmingham, owners Ben and Kay have handed over the reigns to sons Daniel and Moses to carry on the family business, ushering in a new generation of leadership for the future.

Alongside this, SureCare operators up and down the country have grown their businesses thanks to additional marketing support locally and online. Through our social media partners, Facebook advertising has given our services in Doncaster a massive boost. On top of that, we’re currently working with digital partners to make further ongoing improvements across the web. We hope to see more of this in the New Year as we make our way through a positive 2020.
 

We’re still going to be working incredibly hard over the festive season to continue supporting our nationwide operators and care teams.

If you’re interested in joining our growing network in 2020, why not get in touch with SureCare’s Head Office and send us your queries. Call 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk and let’s kick off a discussion.

 

Forward planning for the New Year – be your own boss in 2020

Always wanted to start up your own business but haven’t felt the ambition pushing you on? With the New Year on the horizon, now is the perfect time to start looking ahead to being your own boss.

January typically comes as the perfect time for people to make significant changes in their lives. Whether it’s a commitment to get in shape or taking on a massive long-term goal, make your New Year’s Resolution count as we head into 2020.

Embarking on a new venture can often be a scary prospect, especially if there’s a lot riding on the outcome. Getting cold feet, however, is one of the main reasons why a lot of exciting resolutions like starting your own business end up on the back burner.

Because of this, it’s easy to see how franchising offers a beneficial avenue towards operating your own business. By joining a larger company with a tried and tested business model, a lot of the difficult and time-consuming work is already done.

Why choose the home care sector?

Being your own boss is a dream for a lot of people, but choosing the right line of work is vital to ensure long-lasting job satisfaction. When running your own business, you’re in it for the long haul. You’ll want to operate a business that’s lucrative and sustainable, whilst also being in a sector that’s rewarding and enjoyable on a daily basis.

The home care sector is one of the country’s fastest growing areas of business, with services consistently in high demand all over the nation. Many people are living longer and much preferring the option of remaining in their own homes for as long as possible.

By recruiting a local team of remote care workers, you can provide effective care services to those who most need it. Domiciliary care for elderly people accounts for around two-thirds of all home care provisions today, with other services for children and young adults with physical or learning difficulties in significant demand.

Bringing vital care to the people who need it most is a highly rewarding endeavour. It’s truly magnificent knowing that the services you offer will contribute to people’s lives in the most positive and helpful ways possible. This is why more and more entrepreneurs and budding business owners are looking to provide essential home care in their local communities.

The benefits of franchising

Starting your own business from scratch is a mammoth undertaking and it’s often difficult to know where to even begin. By franchising with an existing company like SureCare, you can fast-track your way to running your own business in a fairly short time and with a relatively modest initial investment.

SureCare, as a franchisor, will be able to provide support and advice every step of the way, whether you need help putting together a business plan, finding suitable premises or seeking financial assistance. After all, we’re just as excited about seeing you and your business succeed as much as you are.

Additionally, once your business is up and running, we don’t just close the door and leave you to it. You’ll be able to rely on continued support from SureCare’s head office franchising team, as well as from other franchise operators in the network for help and advice.

SureCare has 25 years of experience in providing high quality care services, initially serving Chester and the surrounding areas. Over the years, we’ve worked with new business owners up and down the country wanting to bring our unique care provisions to their local areas. We currently have over 50 individual franchise operations in the UK and we’re looking for entrepreneurs like you to expand our reach further in 2020.
 

No matter where you are in the process right now, SureCare is ready to help you get to where you want to be. Whether you have a full business plan ready or just a dream and bags of determination, get in touch with our franchising team and let’s discuss how we can help you on your way to managing your own home care business.

A new addition joins franchisees at SureCare Luton

We recently welcomed a new branch to the SureCare network opening up in Luton. Now we’re pleased to announce that a new franchisee has joined existing operators Keith and Dinesh to provide additional support to the business.

Bal Ghuman will be supporting the team at SureCare Luton in their journey to becoming the number one home care agency in the borough. So far, Keith has been determined to offer brand new care provisions to the area, boasting professionalism and excellent customer service at all times.

Now with extra assistance from Bal, SureCare Luton looks set to deliver above and beyond Keith’s initial expectations.

Meet Bal

Rolling up her sleeves to get stuck in, Bal has an impressive and extensive career background behind her. She has held a variety of senior positions while working in London’s demanding financial industry. Her experience across multiple roles in fast-moving environments put her in good stead to support the SureCare Luton team, both strategically and operationally.

Having first spent time with SureCare’s franchising team at our head offices, Bal is now ready and raring to go at the Luton branch. Whether cooperating with Keith on day-to-day management or supporting the care team in their quality of service, we’re certain that Bal will be more than capable of whatever tasks come her way.

Welcomed by the team

Like all new franchisees, Bal has visited SureCare’s national headquarters in Chester for an intensive induction course and to meet with our head office team. After meeting with Bal, SureCare’s national recruitment manager Josh Farrer praised her with a warm and welcoming message:

“We’re excited to welcome Bal to the SureCare Network and we look forward to watching her and the team grow a substantial business within Luton. Bal has now finished our week-long training course at our Chester training facility and will continue to be supported by our regional business development team at their Luton office base.”

SureCare’s newest franchise operator ready to serve in Halifax & Huddersfield

SureCare is committed to bringing exceptional home care services to the right people throughout the UK. Today we’re pleased to announce the latest operator to join our ever-growing network, who will serve the community across Halifax & Huddersfield.

Leading the way at SureCare Halifax & Huddersfield will be new franchise owner, Parjeet Dua. She is currently on track to open the doors to her new franchise in just a few weeks time, following on from her week-long induction course at SureCare’s Head Offices in Chester.

With her new service offering just around the corner, Parjeet is aiming to become the top provider of home care within the area. She will do this by recruiting a fantastic team, comprised of branch office staff and remote care workers who will spend their time visiting numerous service users in their own homes.

About Parjeet

Parjeet comes to SureCare from a background of working in hospitality and retail. Throughout her varied career, her skills in customer service and effective organisation have really shone through, putting her in excellent stead for running her own SureCare franchise.

She has also demonstrated a keen passion for helping others in our society, recognising the vital needs of those may struggle with typical everyday tasks. Under her considerate and compassionate leadership, SureCare Halifax & Huddersfield will help to transform the lives of people across West Yorkshire thanks to the dedication and professionalism of Parjeet and her team of social care workers.

Operation in Halifax & Huddersfield

One of the key benefits why Parjeet decided to join SureCare is the level of business support on offer – support that wouldn’t necessarily have been available if she had set up her own business from scratch. As one of the nation’s fastest growing home care franchisors, SureCare has a wealth of experience in helping new business owners to bring exceptional services to their local communities.

Support will come from SureCare’s head office team, alongside two Business Development Managers based in the field. Nicola Bews and Stuart Spinks will be on hand to assist Parjeet with various aspects of running a SureCare franchise. From registration with the Care Quality Commission and regular compliance to recruitment, sales and marketing, Nicola and Stuart can help SureCare Halifax & Huddersfield to become well established in the area.

Welcoming Parjeet to the SureCare family, Franchise Recruitment Manager Josh Farrer said: “The team and I are delighted to welcome Parjeet to the SureCare network. Her past careers within senior roles with hospitality and retail means Parjeet has a wealth of experience in building strong and passionate teams in order to deliver a quality customer service.”

“We’re very excited to see what the future holds for Parjeet and we cannot wait to launch her new business in just a couple of weeks time.”
