Unregulated services get SureCare franchisees trading straight away

Change Text Size A A A

When you choose to franchise with SureCare, you can begin providing some basic services and earning income while you wait for approval from regulators to commence with larger care services.

Starting your own business in home care is often tricky because it’s not always possible to start trading straight away. Due to the nature of personal care, providers need to be certified by the national regulating body before being able to carry out the necessary jobs.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulating body for health and social care services in England, making CQC registration absolutely essential before you can support clients with home care. Unfortunately, completing CQC certification can take a while, potentially leaving your business stuck on the starting blocks when you’re ready and raring to get started.

This is why SureCare offers a range of unregulated services for franchisees to offer their clients. Whilst these services take a more hands-off approach to personal care, they can empower your new business to get trading as soon as you’re ready, without losing precious time or money as you wait for CQC approval.

SureCare’s unregulated services

Unregulated services are tasks and jobs that your care team can carry out without requiring regulatory approval from the CQC. These services cover aspects that provide general assistance with people’s daily lives, without needing to adhere to strict rules around personal care.

SureCare’s range of services includes assistance with household jobs and running errands for those unable to get out and about. With household services, you can support someone with general domestic tasks like cleaning, doing the laundry and replacing hard-to-reach light bulbs. Additionally, you can offer assistance in the garden to mow the lawn or tend to plants.

For those with restricted mobility, your care staff can offer support running regular errands. This can include picking up prescriptions, walking pets and even our increasingly popular shopping service. With fast-changing guidance on shopping in public, you can offer to do a client’s weekly shopping for them so they don’t need to worry about going out in the present circumstances.

Franchising with SureCare allows you to maximise your potential by providing helpful services to clients and benefiting from multiple revenue streams as soon as possible.

"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."

"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."
