A Prime Opportunity

Line Break

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 offer the assistance elderly people need to make their lives easier and allow them to maintain their dignity and independence.

What’s more, we don’t just help the elderly! Extra Help provides flexible home-help and domestic services to literally anyone who needs them, from new and hard-working parents to time-poor professionals.

Due to the nature of the services we provide, Extra Help was allowed to remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, providing vital, COVID-compliant assistance and companionship to clients across the country.

Business Model

Line Break

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. Your job as a franchise owner is simply to find clients and recruit responsible, caring and honest home-helpers to meet their requirements.

Modest Monthly
Service Fees

Line Break

Extra Help's service fees are modest and designed to provide you with every chance of success. Your first 3 months of trading are completely free, with service fees of £200 + VAT only payable from month 4. After your first year, fees increase to £250 + VAT per month, or 10%, whichever is greater, with discounts applicable when you achieve your targets.

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!

Our franchisees’ figures speak for themselves. Several franchisees are bringing in an astounding £5,500 per month, and others are bringing in up to £4,000 per month, proving that Extra Help is a viable and lucrative business opportunity.

Join Our Family

Line Break

Our franchise network really is unique, in that we’re like one, big, extended family. Our management team is here to provide you with as much help and guidance as you need to build your own, successful business.

All franchisees enjoy access to a range of mentoring and training services via our Director of operations, Sarah Canny, and Franchise manager and trainer, Denise Cooper, both of whom are also highly experienced franchisees themselves.

Although our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds, they share one, important value. They are all truly passionate about helping people, including their peers, and are encouraged to support and communicate with each other, through social media, regular, regionalised meet-ups and, of course, our Annual Conference.
