Care franchises in the UK are part of a huge sector in franchising. Essentially they are based around non medical support, usually in the customers own home. Franchisees operate a management style franchise that employs a team of carers who support, usually the elderly or housebound. This type of support means that franchisees are looking to recruit those people with a compassionate nature who can carry out all sorts of general errands for their clients. It might be that someone just needs help with simple household chores. Franchisees also are able to confirm to family and friends that everything is ok at home.
Care based businesses are amongst the largest category of franchisors within franchising. It’s a relatively new sector that has accelerated over the last decade or so. Many franchises running teams of carers under government or local authority contracts are running substantial franchised businesses.
