Extra Help

Extra Help – with you every step of the way

Extra Help is a franchise company that operates in a rapidly growing, recession-resilient market.

A prime opportunity

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.

Straightforward business model

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.

Modest, monthly management fees

Extra Help’s ongoing service fees are fixed at £200 + VAT per month for the first year, rising to £250 + VAT in subsequent years, regardless of your earnings. 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.

Join our family

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.
