Extra Help is a franchise company that operates in a rapidly growing, recession-resilient market.
Recent studies show that Britain’s general population is ageing. The number of older people is rapidly increasing, with many of them choosing, or being forced to stay in their own homes and live independently. Along with the closure of many care homes across the country and the fact that local authorities are mostly unwilling to provide non-personal care, a huge opportunity exists to provide the help and assistance that elderly people need to make their lives more comfortable and allow them to maintain their dignity and independence.
As well as helping the elderly, Extra Help provides flexible home-help and domestic services to literally anyone who needs them, from the elderly to new parents and working professionals.
Our tried-and-tested business model is straightforward and easy to follow. Clients are charged a flat fee per hour and home-helpers are self-employed, thereby organising their own tax and National Insurance. As Extra Help is a management franchise, your job as a franchisee is to find clients and recruit responsible, caring and honest home-helpers to meet their requirements.
Extra Help's ongoing service fees are modest at £200 + VAT per month. You can realistically recoup your original investment within the first year, meaning that, upon completion of your first year in business, you could be well on your way to generating serious profits.
We provide full, initial training and follow-up training and support for as long as you need it, so you'll never feel alone. Our franchise network really is unique in that we are like one, big, extended family. Our franchisees are truly passionate about helping people and are encouraged to support and communicate with each other, through social media and regular meet-ups.
Extra Help is an open, trustworthy company that abides by trading law and has undergone the appropriate training and background checks to enable us to receive the following accreditations:
✔ Approved Franchise Association (AFA) member.
✔ NatWest Bank and RBS Approved.
We have designed our franchise packages with your needs in mind, and believe that they include everything you need to start up and manage a highly rewarding, profitable and successful business. Starting at £8,000, including VAT, our three package options, Bronze, Silver and Gold, enable you to invest in an Extra Help franchise at a level at which you feel comfortable, with varying degrees of support.
Our Bronze franchise package is our most cost-effective option but it is still jam-packed full of benefits. Bronze franchisees receive a unique, postcode area, covering 50,000 homes; a detailed Operations Manual, comprehensive induction and refresher training sessions; ongoing support from Head Office; a complete, branded stationery pack; telephone number with answer phone service, email address and web page; 10,000 professionally designed and printed leaflets and much more!
However, if you require more support, you can opt for either our Silver or Gold package, both of which provide you with even more assistance to help you get your business off the ground and manage it successfully.
