Discover SureCare’s unique business model

Change Text Size A A A

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.

Head Office support

By franchising, you’re not limiting yourself to develop your business alone.

Testimonials

"I don’t come from a care background, but became interested in running a business in this sector after caring for my grandfather. I saw how difficult it is for older people to continue to live on their own without day-to-day support. I like the ethos of SureCare, which is all about providing clients with the highest possible quality of care. It allows me to run my own successful business while also giving back to the community."

Amrit Dhaliwal, Oxfordshire

"We chose a franchise because it gives support on time-consuming issues such as policy, procedures and legislation, so it left us free to provide care. When we started out eight years ago, we were the sole carers, as well as looking after the marketing the business. Today we have 60 staff providing care for more than 100 children and older people."
