Unlike many domiciliary care companies in the UK, Blossom Home Care is a highly profitable multi-award-winning, British owed company offering a high-quality service and good client experience. The geographical area covered by carers is designed to minimise travelling time, where possible so that more time can be spent with clients. A minimum visit time of 50-minutes further reduces mileage and the number of carers needed to deliver the care, which means that fewer clients are required to show a significant number of care hours delivered each week. This leads to lower overall costs, which helps increase profitability to a level not usually found in domiciliary home care.

Blossom Home Care Franchising Ltd is co-owned and co-directed by the founders of Blossom Home Care Ltd, husband and wife, John and Fiona Leggott. With John’s business skills and Fiona’s wealth of nursing and social care knowledge and skills they developed a company that created a good client experience by delivering the best standard of high-quality home care. The sort of care they would be happy for their own parents or relatives to experience.
After opening the head office in Northallerton and then a second office in Tadcaster John and Fiona had a vision, to roll out their business model nationally so that everyone could experience the exceptional care delivered by Blossom Home Care.
Fiona has received recognition for her work within the social care sector and won the prestigious, lifetime achievement, Great British Care Awards, Regional Winner 2019, North East Award ‘Outstanding Contribution to Social Care’.
Blossom Home Care have also been recognised with the following awards:
- ‘Home Care Team’ at the Yorkshire and Humberside regional Great British Care Awards in 2016
- Runner up at the Great British Care Awards National Finals 2017, for the Home Care Team Award
- 2017 ‘Best Customer Service’ award at the Hambleton Business Awards.
- ‘Palliative Care Team’ Award at the North East, Regional, Great British Care Awards in 2019
- A Commendation for their ‘Palliative care team’ in the 2020 National Great British Care Awards
Blossom are offering all their expertise and know-how to franchisees who want to succeed in the domiciliary care industry.
Buying a Blossom Home Care Franchise means you’re investing in an established brand, systems and processes and a dedicated and knowledgeable support team. You can build your own business in domiciliary care while benefiting from Blossom’s experience of perfecting the delivery of high-quality home care into this niche market. You’ll also benefit from Blossom’s robust systems and in-depth training programme, be given an exclusive area, constant support from a dedicated franchise support team and the opportunity to develop a profitable and enjoyable business caring for adults in their own homes.
Blossom’s award-winning achievements are thanks to a highly dedicated, professional management team, who all follow the same vision with set values and a common ethos. They share a true understanding of the care sector with their mission to deliver “just bloomin’ good care”. This expertise is part of the Franchise package, as is all the knowledge and experience that John, Fiona and the team have taken years to perfect.
Furthermore, because the business model has been created for franchising, the Directors have purposely run the offices remotely, without day-to-day involvement, to ensure the model can roll out successfully. Meaning the system is tried and tested and can offer a work-life balance.
Blossom Home Care Franchising Ltd. will award Franchises in protected territories defined by post-codes. These territories, developed by a professional franchise territory mapping company, are based on the model established from the original offices, and which the new franchised offices have successfully replicated. Each territory has been mapped based on a population density of 100,000 people over 65, ensuring that each Franchisee has an equal opportunity. These territories are among the largest demographic areas to be offered in the home care franchise industry.
It is thought likely that the demand for home care services will remain robust, increasing in line with population changes. The Lancet reported that the number of people aged 65 plus and classed as ‘high dependency’ will rise by almost 200,000 by 2035. The social care industry is also expected to grow, both in real terms, as the population ages, and as a proportion of the total services delivered due to changes in eligibility criteria for state-funded care and a greater awareness of the role of home care as the preferred alternative to residential care.
From setting up your new company and office to CQC registration to gaining employees and services and then starting to deliver care- we will guide you every step of the way.
