SureCare offers ‘Recession Resilient’ franchising

Change Text Size A A A

Starting a new business is often a daunting prospect and it can come with a massive degree of uncertainty. It’s difficult to take the plunge and dive straight into a brand new venture from scratch, and today’s economic landscape is often an off-putting factor too.

To help ease the strain, entrepreneurs may want to invest in franchising with a larger business. This means that extra support and guidance will typically be available to help franchise owners and managers in their everyday activities.

However, even with the best and most reliable support, how can a new franchise operator be sure that their business will stay afloat if the economy takes a rough turn?

Choose the right industry

With all sorts of factors potentially having an impact on businesses, it’s important to understand that certain industries may be in a better position to face these issues than others. The home care sector is currently one of the most versatile and adaptable industries that has a considerably strong outlook for the future.

Running a business in home care offers you the unique opportunity to operate in a hugely popular sector that allows you to reach out and greatly benefit members of your local community. Care services are increasingly in demand today, and this is a trend that is expected to continue according to rises in population and life expectancy.

SureCare is one of the nation’s leaders in providing quality care to a wide range of services users – young and old. Our tried-and-tested franchising model has helped over 50 franchisees across the country to bring these services to those most in need of them, all while benefitting from business development support on a regular basis.

Our ageing population

The Office for National Statistics currently predicts that the UK population is set to rise dramatically over the next 20 years. It’s expected that there will be over 74 million people by the year 2039, and one of the key contributing factors is that many of us are living much longer than ever before.

Today, around 18% of the total population is over the age of 65. This is expected to reach 20% over the next decade – that’s 1 in 5 of us who may be more likely to rely on assistance at home in some way. Whether one requires extensive domiciliary care or just a helping hand around the house a few times a week, home care offers an all-encompassing, flexible service to millions of people.

Care services are already in high demand, and this will only increase as our ageing population continues to grow. This means that, in spite of any economic troubles the future may hold, operators in the care sector will still be able to thrive and serve large numbers of people in the years to come.

Additional services

Domiciliary care for older people makes up the vast majority of SureCare’s services, but this isn’t the only way we provide care in the community. Our extensive knowledge and expertise in various areas has allowed our care teams to provide assistance for people at all stages of life’s journey.

With services available for childcare, disability care and even just help with domestic jobs around the home, SureCare franchise operators can offer so much more. These additional services not only offer more variety to customers, but they also act as further streams of revenue that can help to keep your business running smoothly.

Operating a franchise business in the care sector is one of the most rewarding ways to make a living today. You get to work with various from all walks of life and get to form strong bonds with them on a regular basis. The high demand for care services also means that there will always be considerable support for your business for the foreseeable future and beyond.
 

SureCare has franchising opportunities available across the country, enabling you to bring vital care services to your local community.

Testimonials

"I started off as a carer and then worked as a manager in the office of a care franchise, so I chose a franchise when I decided to start my own business. Care is heavily regulated and when I started the regulations were in flux, so I wanted the support of a franchisor. I’ve now got about 100 service users and have built up a team of 40 staff. I need much less franchisor support now, but it’s always there if needed and I talk regularly with other franchisees. We swap tips, advice and ideas so the franchise comes with a useful network."

Anne Anyon, Preston & South Ribble

"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."
