5 reasons why a Hope Homecare franchise is better than going it alone

Whether you are in the care industry yourself, or are someone who just recognises a great business opportunity when they see one, you might be wondering what’s stopping you from starting your own care business and building it up from scratch. After all, that’s exactly what Hope Homecare has done, so why not you?

Well, it’s not that simple, of course. There are the obvious benefits of joining a franchise which you might already be aware of: reduced risk as a new business, a higher profile brand, being part of a bigger network etc. However, starting your own care business is particularly complex and fraught, which is why there are clear advantages to joining a franchise like Hope Homecare.

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should consider not going it alone:

Help getting accredited

All care agencies and other providers in the UK must be accredited by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), or the Care Inspectorate in Wales. If you’re not familiar with it already, trust me when I say it is not easy! (and nor should it be). Think of all the worst stories you’ve heard about OFSTED inspections and other government schemes, and double it. Hope Homecare will help you navigate this minefield and give you the start you need.

Recruiting carers

Good quality carers are in extremely high demand, and businesses need to work incredibly hard to attract enough of them. Not only does Hope Homecare have a great reputation as a franchise carers want to work in, but they can also help take the hard work out of finding high-quality staff with with centralised recruitment campaigns, advertising and the government sponsorship scheme.

Attracting more clients

There may be an urgent need for care among the most vulnerable in the UK, but those people, and their loved ones, still want to make sure they are receiving the best possible care they can. Reputation is even more essential in care than most other businesses, so being part of an established and trusted brand will give you an incredible head start.

Better training and support

By being part of the Hope Homecare franchise, you’ll benefit from a level of experience and expertise which you could never match alone. This support can be invaluable, especially if you’re new to the care industry or business ownership, but it also essential in helping you stay on top of all the latest training and developments in the industry.

Collective problem solving

Care is a very complex business which is constantly required to adapt to meet its service users changing needs. By being part of a franchise, you are also part of a larger community of like-minded people and fellow franchisees who are dedicated to helping each other. You’ll be able to share best practice, help each other overcome challenges, and seek guidance whenever you need it.
