Become part of a growing & highly lucrative market
Home Care Preferred operates within one of the most sustainable sectors in the country which is constantly growing due to demographic pressures.
We operate in a market which has been estimated at over £20 billion per annum. As more and more people are encouraged by Government to be cared for in their own homes instead of moving into residential care, or seeking support from the NHS, the size of the market is expected to increase.
In addition to the massive demand for home care we also appeal to the retail market where the need to buy and hire independent living aid equipment is growing every day. According to statistics revealed by the government, there are around 11 million disabled people living in the UK.
Training & Support
Our franchise owners receive some of the best training and support in the industry. Our comprehensive training programme covers all aspects of the home care business, including pre-and post-opening training to give your business the best possible start.
We have an initial training programme of over 43 days which is bespoke and focussed on the essential skills needed to set up a successful home care business.
This is followed by ongoing support from our team for various aspects of the business including business development, marketing, care, quality, finance, IT, retail and product knowledge.
Our launch programme helps you generate local awareness, while our ongoing support helps you to further your business aims and objectives after the initial launch. Our management team know exactly what it takes to make a home care business successful, and will be with you every step of the way to get the best out of your resources.
The typical total investment needed to start a Home Care Preferred franchise is from £95,000 and this covers the franchise fee, the set-up costs, employee recruitment and the working capital to get the business to break even (18 months). The investment cost can be made up of personal funds and bank borrowing
Should you require financial support, Home Care Preferred has an excellent relationship with HSBC, NatWest, RBS and Lloyds Banking Group, who will consider lending up to 70% of the total investment required.
There is an ongoing royalty fee of 4.5% of monthly turnover. By years 3-4, it is typical for a Home Care Preferred franchise business to have a £2 million turnover and operating profits of 15-20%.
We have won numerous regional and national awards in the last 5 years.
In 2016 we were awarded “Best Domiciliary Care Provider” in the national Health Investor awards and have become finalists for 2017 Health Investor Award for Community Support Provider of the Year.
We have also won multiple awards at the Great British Care Awards in the past and were winners of the Regional Front Line Leader Award in 2016
