As we leave the summer behind and look ahead to the end of the year, now seems like the perfect time to get a head start on making significant plans for 2019.

Okay, we’re still a fair few months away from those all-important New Year’s Resolutions. But if you’re itching to make a few changes in your career or you simply want to follow a new passion or interest, it’s never too early to start thinking about those potential plans for the future.

People often wonder whether they could move away from their existing routines and embark on an entirely new venture. For those with the right drive and ambition, running their own business may well be the ultimate dream. However, the prospect of starting your own business from scratch can be quite daunting to begin with.

This is where franchising offers an ideal solution, and SureCare has many franchising opportunities available. By joining the home care industry, budding entrepreneurs like you have already helped countless people to continue enjoying their daily lives. Find out more about how a SureCare franchise can be just what you need as we head towards the New Year.

Franchising with SureCare

SureCare provides vital home care services to people up and down the country, allowing these who are vulnerable or who need a little extra help to continue living their lives to the fullest. Over the last 24 years, we’ve been able to support people of all ages and all abilities throughout various stages of life’s journey, thanks to the ongoing hard work of our franchisees nationwide.

By franchising with SureCare, our operators get the best of both worlds in receiving dedicated and knowledgeable support from our head office team, whilst also having the freedom to be their own boss and run their own business. With our additional marketing support and assistance in recruiting care workers in your area, franchising allows you to get on with looking after the nuts and bolts of your daily operations.

Joining the home care industry with SureCare is also easier than you might expect, even if you’ve never worked in care before. Through our Business Development Managers and highly experienced franchising team, we give you all the necessary support and training both in the early stages and on a continuing basis.

The benefits of a home care franchise

Making the leap from a steady and comfortable role to a completely new venture can bring all sorts of worries with it. One of the biggest concerns comes in the form of money. New business owners will want to know whether their considerable investment will pay off and lead to a healthy income.

In comparison to other franchise business models, joining SureCare requires a relatively low initial investment. On top of that, additional financing assistance is available thanks to our strong reputation amongst a range of high street lenders willing to offer suitable business loans.

As elderly care makes up a large portion of our services, the growing demand for home care among our ageing population ensures that your services will always be needed. SureCare’s other care services include childcare, temporary respite cover and disability care, giving you multiple options for multiple revenue streams.

From the first enquiry to the first day of your operations, the process of setting up a new franchise with SureCare can take several months. Getting a head start on the process now means that come the New Year, you’ll already be well on your way to fulfilling your goal of a new career journey.

To get started with new business plans for the New Year, speak to SureCare today about a potential franchising opportunity in your area. Give us a call on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and let’s kick off the 2019 together in style!

The care industry currently stands at a crossroads, with growing numbers of people requiring care services and the need for increased care providers in the immediate future.

As more and more quality care services are necessary, it’s important for us to ensure that the right people receive the right help as quickly and easily as possible. Many budding business owners are recognising this demand for care and finding that franchising offers a bold way forwards.

New franchisees often begin with little or no previous experience in care, but through support and training from SureCare’s team of experienced professionals, they’re able to operate and provide services to the highest of standards. There are various reasons for starting a new home care franchise with SureCare, which we highlight here:

Increasing demand

Our increasing life expectancy over the years now means that more people today are living longer than ever before. That means more of us are, naturally, becoming frail and relying on care in later life. Ultimately, this puts a bit of strain on care providers to meet the rising demand.

It’s predicted that by the year 2030, there’ll be around 1 in 5 UK adults over the age of 65. The healthcare industry is presently faced with various challenges surrounding staffing and service capacity, so getting stuck in and establishing your own home care franchise will help to relieve a bit of the pressure.

Investment and reward

The initial investment required to start up a business in home care provision is relatively small compared to other franchises. Starting your own SureCare franchise requires an investment of around £35,000 – £50,000. To offer a little extra support, we also have strong relationships with many high street banks and lenders who can provide new franchisees with suitable business loans.

Despite beginning with a relatively modest investment amount, SureCare franchisees can benefit from impressive gains thanks to our unique business model. Our impressive range of services allows you to benefit from multiple revenue streams and grow your operations. As proof, several previous SureCare franchisees have achieved a £1 million turnover in the first 12-18 months.

Dedicated and knowledgeable support

“But I don’t know the first thing about the care industry…”

It’s a common concern among new potential franchisees, but it’s not a necessity to have a background in care to join SureCare. Our head office team is made up of experienced and knowledgeable individuals in the care industry. It is through their dedication and ongoing support that your franchise can flourish.

The ideal franchisee will come to us with the drive and determination to provide a stand-out service to our clients and to develop their business. With high levels of compassion and understanding, your direction will influence how your local team of care workers operate alongside the support of the wider SureCare family.

 

If you want to find out more about how franchising with SureCare can help you to kick-start your own business in the care sector, call us today on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and have a chat with our franchising team.

 

We’ve recently welcomed another new franchisee to the SureCare group, extending our reach even further to bring the best quality care services to the right people.

Over the last month, we’ve already seen various success stories from some of our latest franchisees, and today we’re proud to formally announce the introduction of another new operator launching SureCare Ealing & Hounslow. Led by Ayad Abdul-Ahad, the new branch further expands SureCare’s presence throughout London.

Like all of our new franchisees, Ayad visited our exceptional induction and training facilities based in SureCare’s head office in Chester. During the week-long training programme, he got to meet key members of our team who will be able to provide future assistance in a variety of areas.

Having completed the induction, Ayad will go on to establish a team of care workers and admin staff to operate out of their new premises and visiting service users in their own homes throughout the territory. SureCare Ealing & Hounslow will be able to provide specialist care packages to people in the area who might not have had the chance to receive quality, affordable home care previously.

About Ayad

Ayad’s leadership of SureCare Ealing & Hounslow comes fresh off the back of an extensive medical background. Over the last 24 years, he has work in the Biopharmaceutical industry across both the US and Europe. During this time, he has built and led Medical Affairs and Clinical Development in various leading companies.

Ayad treated the first ever patient with a therapeutic antibody for cancer and has also become highly regarded throughout the medical world for his work in MS. His experience in pioneering medical treatments has given him a great understanding of the dire situations that patients – as well as their friends and families – go through.

Because of his phenomenal background, he has proven his capabilities for delivering vital care and showing compassion are unrivalled. SureCare is confident that having Ayad at the helm of operations in Ealing & Hounslow, residents in the area will greatly benefit from care packages and customer service of the highest quality.

When he’s not hard at work, however, his wide range of hobbies and interests help to keep him occupied. From home cooking and fitness, to brushing up on history and even some Italian Opera, Ayad will surely be able to engage with service users across a variety of subjects. Additionally, he completely understands the importance of family values, choosing to spend lots of quality time visiting family at home and afar.

Franchising support

As with all franchisees across our network, SureCare’s expertise and in-depth knowledge of the care sector will be shared with Ayad and his team in Ealing to ensure that care services are delivered suitably and effectively.

With the support of our business development managers Jurgita Baublyte and Peter Craven, as well as the head office team and our numerous franchisees nationwide, SureCare Ealing & Hounslow will start strong and experience continued successes long into the future.

Both BDMs will focus on specialist areas of business: Jurgita looks at care quality compliance and maintaining consistent standards and processes. Meanwhile, Peter provides help with recruiting care workers and office staff in the area, alongside sales and marketing support to increase visibility and attract new clientele.

Welcoming Ayad and SureCare Ealing & Hounslow to our growing network, Franchise Recruitment Manager Josh Farrer stated:

It has been a great pleasure getting to know Ayad and welcoming him in to the SureCare Family. Ayad brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience and has a real passion to provide a quality level of safe and effectiveness care within his community.

The team and I are looking forward to working closely with Ayad for many years to come.

Call us today on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and let’s discuss a potential franchising opportunity!

 

As SureCare’s services continue to expand across the country at a phenomenal rate, we’re delighted to announce the arrival of two more new operators joining our network.

Our latest franchisees will bring our special brand of quality care services to new territories in order to reach more and more people. These new operators have undergone their week-long induction course at our state-of-the-art training facilities at SureCare’s head office in Chester, and will go on to establish their own new teams.

From local care workers to administrative staff, these new teams will strive to provide aid to those requiring specialist care across all walks of life. SureCare doesn’t just help those in later life with domiciliary care, but also offers a range of care packages for people of all ages and abilities. We’re proud to be able to support so many local communities with the help of our new franchisees.

New additions to the SureCare network

SureCare’s newest franchisees have been setting up their local office bases and recently completed training with us. From here, we’ll be helping them to spread the word about the specialist care packages they can offer to people in their specific territories of London.

Operating SureCare Fulham & Chelsea is Raida Mohammed, while across the river, Zah Zephirin takes the lead for SureCare Southwark. Neither of these operators comes from a care background specifically, but bring with them the passion and drive to help make a significant difference in people’s lives. This is supported by a wealth of commercial business experience to ensure they run a tight ship and continue to deliver high quality services.

Alongside the help of SureCare’s head office support team, their own Business Development Managers and the wider SureCare network, Raida and Zah will be able to lead the way for teams of specialist care workers to help a wide variety of people in their boroughs.

Support from SureCare’s Franchise team

SureCare has several dedicated Business Development Managers, working with our franchisees to assist them in growing their business, as well as providing support for a range of aspects including staff training, finance advice and marketing materials.

Both Raida and Zah will receive regular help from two key members of our operations team. Firstly, Jurgita Baublyte will be on hand to help with policies, procedures, monitoring service quality and maintaining strong compliance with Care Quality Commission regulations.

Additionally, Peter Craven will be able to support these franchisees with sales and marketing help, care worker recruitment and client retention to keep the wheels turning for SureCare Fulham & Chelsea and SureCare Southwark.

Each one of our franchisees – both long-standing and new – receives regular support from the core franchising and management team, based in our Chester head office. Our lines of communication are open at virtually any time, so that we can maintain a flexible level of assistance whenever and wherever it’s needed.

Franchising in the future

As highlighted by our new franchisees’ backgrounds, it’s not essential to have previous experience in the care sector to join the SureCare network. Our business development managers and members of our franchising team all carry a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which can be shared with our new operators during initial training and beyond.

When it comes to recruiting new franchisees, the most valuable qualities we look for are the drive, determination, passion and commitment to providing an excellent service for those who most need it. Through these ethics and traits, we can be confident in relying on our operators to make significant progress in their business on the road to great success.

Josh Farrer, SureCare’s Franchise Recruitment Manager commented on the continuing growth of the SureCare network, saying:

“Our franchise model is unrivalled within the care industry. The support and training on offer to each of our franchisees allows businesses to establish themselves quickly and grow into substantial operations providing thousands of hours of good quality care in people’s homes every day. This is why people are choosing SureCare.”

SureCare is pleased to announce that a brand new operator has joined our network of franchisees, bringing SureCare’s range of unique services to the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Coming on board with us at the beginning of August, operations at SureCare Hillingdon are being led by Dipti Patel.

Dipti is highly ambitious and she’ll be aiming to make a real difference in the lives of people throughout the borough. Her main ambition is to change the face of home care services in the Hillingdon area, ensuring that those most in need of care services get the right levels of support.

Her background and extraordinary depth of knowledge in the care sector is sure to help her in directing the business. Dipti has previously managed a separate franchise, working primarily in the Childcare sector. After 10 years in charge, however, she took a break from her career to become a full-time carer for her late husband.

The vast experience and insight she has gained – both as a manager and as a home carer – has helped her to understand the level of hard work, compassion, patience and determination required to care for our loved ones. With these core values at the forefront of SureCare’s high quality service, Dipti can pass on her wisdom and expertise to members of her new team.

Assisting her in franchise operations will be her partner Sagar, who has a wide-ranging background in various aspects of business. On top of that, the branch will receive further professional help in more specialised areas thanks to two of SureCare’s own dedicated Business Development Managers.

Jurgita Baublyte will be able to provide assistance to ensure that legal compliance is maintained and a high quality of service is regularly delivered to clients. Meanwhile, Pete Craven will support Dipti and the Hillingdon franchise with sales and marketing support, as well as offering specialist recruitment services to source new care staff in the area.

Dipti is passionate about SureCare’s core belief that everyone deserves the highest quality of care. She aims to inspire her new team of care workers at SureCare Hillingdon with this passion so that they can regularly provide the best possible care in their local community.
 

If you’re considering starting your own business in home care and want to see how franchising with SureCare can benefit you, get in touch with us today and let us know you have what it takes.

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union is undoubtedly having an impact on various aspects of the British economy, but franchisors like SureCare are continuing to thrive regardless.

It’s likely you’re probably feeling a bit bombarded by all the news and speculation that surrounds the looming Brexit deadline. With the UK set to leave the EU on 29 March 2019, both the government and the world of business are seeing frantic preparations being made for what might happen next.

However, there are many franchisors that don’t seem to be feeling the pressure as much. While looking ahead to successes in the near future, many franchise businesses are experiencing considerable progress today. Among them, SureCare continues to expand its network with new franchisees regularly coming on board and growing their operations.

The potential disruption

Since the 2016 referendum, Brexit has dominated the national conversation, with questions over the potential impacts popping up. Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the value of the pound take a wobble along with uncertainties surrounding the status of EU nationals living and working in the UK, particularly in the healthcare sector.

Any business’ ability to be flexible, however, will be very valuable during the transition stage and in the years to follow. This flexibility will make it useful to adapt to any major changes as quickly and smoothly as possible, if and when necessary. At SureCare, how we provide various services for people – both young and old – allows us to focus on tailoring care packages for individuals with differing healthcare needs.

When it comes to our franchisees, our links with various major high streets banks and lenders help to secure funding for their new business. Many of these lenders have indicated that Brexit will not affect their decision-making on funding opportunities any time soon, so our prospective franchisees will still continue to benefit from great financial assistance in the early stages of their new venture.

Why SureCare will continue to flourish

Home care services are currently in a period of high demand, and this is set to continue for a long time into future. As our life expectancy improves, more people are living longer into old age, making elderly care one of the largest and most important services around.

On top of this, there is a growing trend for home care services to be delivered to clients in their own homes, as opposed to them having to move into a residential care setting. Receiving care at home helps people to maintain a sense of independence and contributes positively to their mental health and wellbeing.

To deliver SureCare’s unique brand of quality care services to people in their local communities, franchisees work alongside our head office team to source the best care workers in their areas. Through our collective determination and compassion for others, SureCare’s ability to grow across the country is expected to thrive, no matter what changes Brexit might bring.

Franchising with SureCare

Now in our 25th year in business, SureCare continues to go from strength to strength. We started off solely as a provider of home care services in the Chester area. However, as our workforce has developed over time – expanding our skillset, expertise and in-depth knowledge of the care sector – we’ve helped to bring these vital services to other parts of the UK too.

In order to do just that, SureCare relies on the help of our franchisees up and down the country. With those dedicated business owners operating local branches and employing enthusiastic care workers in their communities, we’re proud to see that more and more people are getting the right care and support they need.

The last few years in particular have been phenomenal for SureCare’s growth, as we’ve experienced a surge of many new franchisees joining our network. Today, over 45 franchises are in operation throughout the UK, and this expansion is showing no signs of slowing down with many more potential franchisees on the horizon.

A highly qualified care professional with over 30 years of experience in the NHS has opened a new care service in Hertfordshire.

Karen Carroll has opened the Hertfordshire branch of SureCare to bring high quality person-centred care and support services to the area.

She is joined in the business by Helen Roberts, who has a wealth of management experience and has worked for a successful European manufacturing and distribution company, and Kevin Isaac, the founder of a successful local financial planning and wealth management business.

Using their combined skills, Helen will manage the day-to-day running of the business working alongside Registered Manager Karen, who will be responsible for the quality of care services.

A number of people have already been taken on by the company and they will be looking to build their team in the near future.

Karen, who is combining her 30 years of experience in care with the NHS’s aim to deliver a home care service second to none, said: “I want to deliver care to our clients that truly makes a difference to their lives.

“We understand the family challenges that are present when having to face caring for a loved one as well as the loneliness that many living on their own feel. We make sure that our carers have the time that they need to not only fulfil our client’s care needs but also to be their lifeline to the world at a time when they may not be as mobile as they once were.’

“Our focus will also be on providing a rewarding and fulfilling working environment for our dedicated team of carers and support staff. The carers are the face of our company and it is only through them that we can deliver the level of service that our clients expect so it is incredibly important that we recruit the very best and provide them with an environment in which they will thrive.”

Official opening

Surecare Hertfordshire was officially opened by the Deputy Mayor of Hertsmere, Councillor Alan Plancey with an afternoon tea in their Barnet office.
He said: “It’s fantastic to see businesses launching that not only bring jobs to the area but provide services to the most vulnerable people. I wish SureCare Hertfordshire every success in their business.”

SureCare Hertfordshire, based in Wrotham Business Park in Barnet, covers home care services in Hatfield, Hertford, Potters Bar, Goffs Oak, Brookmans Park, Newgate Street, Northaw, Welham Green, London Colney, Welwyn, Welwyn Garden City and the surrounding areas.

The company supplies people in the area with a range of dedicated care services including person centred care for the elderly and vulnerable, home services and staffing solutions for care homes.

SureCare is one of the UK’s fastest growing care companies with branches and franchises around the UK.

SureCare is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and has over two decades of experience in the personal care sector, with franchises across the UK delivering quality care and support for all stages of life’s journey.

Setting up just 12 months ago, SureCare North Leeds has experienced steady and significant growth in their business. Now the team are looking ahead to wider expansion with an increase in care staff.

Led by Manjinder Heer and his son Karun, the business has gone from strength to strength in providing vulnerable people with exceptional care services. Through this progression, these operators have been able to expand their team to reach more and more service users throughout the area.

Following their own personal experiences of caring for loved ones, Manjinder and Karun approached SureCare to establish and manage their own range of home care services, supporting the community in North Leeds & Harrogate. Over the last year, the father/son duo have forged a successful path with family values right at the heart of the business.

Further expansion & recruitment

Fresh off the back of scooping the Best Achievement Award at SureCare’s annual conference and gala earlier this year, SureCare North Leeds is delighted to announce plans for further growth in their team.

The branch is currently actively looking to recruit 50 new care workers by January 2019, to continue their strong, person-centred delivery of quality care services. Through this evolution, the team will be able to expand their clientele across North Leeds, Harrogate and the surrounding areas.

Speaking about the business’ plans for the future, Karun Heer of SureCare North Leeds said:

“We are set to face more healthy growth and with this we recognise the need to expand our growing team. We are delighted to have a happy set of our clientele who receive a service which meets their individual needs.”

“Our carefully designed and robust recruitment process ensures we identify those who have the right attitude and work ethic to deliver our bespoke and high quality service. That’s the SureCare promise.”
 

By continuing to expand through further recruitment and providing vital care services to residents in the wider area, SureCare North Leeds is committed to making a real difference in people’s lives where they need it most.

 

When speaking to potential new franchisees, one of the most common worries people express comes down to their lack of previous experience in the care sector.

It’s common for new business owners to want to play to their strengths, relying on their backgrounds and the industry knowledge they’ve acquired. That’s why the prospect of entering an entirely new sector can often feel quite daunting, and the care sector is no different.

By joining SureCare, however, there’s no need to worry about whether or not you’re familiar with the ins and outs of home care. With almost 25 years of experience and expertise under our belts, SureCare’s franchising team can help you to fill any gaps in your knowledge, allowing you to get on with managing your daily operations.

What puts people off?

For any business providing care services, it’s absolutely vital to ensure that you can offer quality care to some of the most vulnerable people in our society. As such, it’s understandable why many business owners may be wary of taking on a large responsibility in such a specialised field.

Home care providers don’t just need to offer services to their customers; they offer an essential lifeline that has to be regular and consistent in quality. If a business owner hasn’t worked in care before, they may end up lacking in confidence or feeling under-prepared to adequately meet the needs of their clients.

Why join the care sector?

Despite this, there are several reasons why someone may have the desire to get involved in the care sector in the first place. It could be that they have witnessed first-hand the importance of providing care for an elderly or vulnerable relative, or it may simply be that they wish to help members of their local community.

It’s one thing to recognise the amount of work and effort that goes into caring for an individual, but running a business capable of caring for several people requires a much bigger leap. By starting your own home care business, you can become a part of the solution in helping various people in your area.

How can SureCare help?

At SureCare, we look for like-minded individuals with the key qualities suited to advancing a strong business in any field. From there, we can offer our industry knowledge and expertise to collaborate on franchise opportunities to make them a success. If you can bring the passion, vision, commitment and hard work to your business, we can help to keep you and your business on the right track.

With those core skills as a foundation, our franchise support team provides the right tools and resources to support you in the finer details of running a successful home care business. Through this, we work alongside our franchisees to help them maximise their full potential.

 

If you think you have what it takes to run your own business, speak to SureCare to see how joining the fast-growing world of home care could suit you. All you need is the drive and determination to deliver the best service you can, and we can help with all the rest.

Speak to us today on 01244 321 199 or send an email to enquiries@surecare.co.uk and get started on your journey towards providing quality care services in your area.

 

Following SureCare’s unprecedented growth in recent years, our network of franchisees has continued to expand vastly across the UK.

To assist our new and existing franchisees in setting up and maintaining their daily operations, SureCare has brought on board a new Business Development Manager.

Here we’d like to take the opportunity to introduce the newest addition to our head office team, Peter Caven.

 

With a wealth of knowledge and experience behind him, Peter will be a regular point of contact for many of our franchisees nationally. In this role, he’ll be responsible for helping new operators to set up their businesses, acquire premises and recruit teams of care workers in their local areas.

Before joining SureCare, Pete has worked within the recruitment sector since 2005, spending over 10 years specialising in the Healthcare sector. By sharing his expertise with our franchisees, he’ll be able to offer support in finding the right people best suited to the job.

His background in a variety of different senior positions – including Operations Manager and Client Relationship Manager – also demonstrates that Pete is a strong all-rounder. By bringing this wide-ranging experience to his new role as a BDM at SureCare, we’re certain that our franchise operators will be in good hands throughout every stage of their development.

When he’s not utilising his impressive skillset to assist our franchisees, Pete enjoys travelling and spending time with his partner and children. As a keen fan of Celtic FC, he even makes regular trips to watch and cheer on his favourite team!

We’re looking forward to seeing Pete bring that same level of enthusiasm to building strong relationships with our franchisees and the dedicated support he can provide them with. SureCare is proud to have Pete on board with our head office team, with a bright and successful future ahead.
