Build a business for yourself, not by yourself
As an established provider of residential and regulated care services, Kare Plus builds positive relationships and delivers workable solutions to today’s challenges by working in partnership with the wider care industry, nationally and locally.
But what is it that sets Kare Plus apart from other care providers and recruiters? Not only do we offer a unique model built around multiple revenue streams, our team also provides an industry-leading level of support.
With a prestigious thirty-year-long history in the sector and well-established links with many national healthcare organisations; Kare Plus empowers franchise owners to make a positive difference across local communities, on a national scale, all while running a successful and profitable business.
Kare Plus Group Managing Director, Steve Welsh began his Kare Plus journey as a franchise owner with the organisation in 2007. Using the knowledge gained from owning and operating a Kare Plus franchise, Steve acquired the brand and restructured the business. Over the past decade, Steve has built and developed Kare Plus in tandem with an expert management team into a network of over 90 franchises across the United Kingdom.
The success of any industry can never be assured, but healthcare is one driven by a constant and universal demand. With 18% of the population aged 65 and over - a figure that’s predicted to increase - and the general population expected to break 80 million by the end of the century, the demand for public and private healthcare services will only increase as the population grows.
Our dual model approach to healthcare enables Kare Plus franchise owners to work with local healthcare establishments - such as hospitals, nursing homes and medical centres - while also working in the community to support customers in their own homes by providing a number of regulated services. The adaptability of the Kare Plus model allows franchise owners to capitalise on the growing demand for healthcare in residential establishments and in the homes of customers.
The homecare model grants aspiring entrepreneurs the ability to focus on the provision of regulated services. Working in-line with the standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), franchise owners deliver a range of regulated services tailored to the varying needs of customers. Homecare and other associated services place our franchise owners at the hearts of communities where they make a real difference to - and empower - the lives of customers up and down the country.
The United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) estimates that 249 million hours of homecare are delivered in England each year. There are roughly 350,000 people using homecare services in the UK, and there is a growing demand for services that support the elderly, those with learning/physical disabilities and individuals with mental health problems. There is a lot of scope in the Kare Plus franchise model to support the changing needs of the healthcare market in an equitable and profitable way.
Our Homecare Offer - Flexibility combined with a lower investment level makes the Kare Plus homecare franchise model ideal for the entrepreneur that wants to deliver quality care in people’s own homes. £25,000 + VAT with an additional minimum working capital of £30,000+. There is also an additional pricing structure that allows aspiring entrepreneurs to purchase a franchise for £15,000, paying off the rest of the fee throughout their franchise journey.
Our Dual Model Offer - As well as delivering care in a person’s own home, our dual model franchisees can also supply care into residential and nursing homes. Allowing the franchisee to run two, separate but linked business models out of one office, increasing stability and adaptability. The franchise fee is £40,000+ VAT, with an additional minimum working capital of £50,000
Due to our experience and proven business format, we have developed a close working relationship with many major UK banks, allowing potential franchisees the option of a loan that covers up to 70% of the total cost and the ability to break even within the first year.
Why franchise with us?
Kare Plus believes the future lies with the quality and performance of our franchise owners and our vision is to become the market leader in the provision of healthcare services. This will be achieved by recruiting and working closely with franchise owners, and by integrating new services into our model so that we can always meet the ever-changing requirements of the healthcare sector.
We believe in putting the franchisee first, which is why we recently announced the Platinum Business Group. A collection of the most successful franchisees in the Kare Plus network who will work alongside directors to help the franchise network achieve excellence. Working with franchise owners allows Kare Plus to develop projects from the ground up, building them around the needs of our network with support from those leading it at the front.
We seek to award our franchise opportunities to applicants who have a passion for providing quality, who are driven by ambition and who have the experience to grow a substantial and rewarding business.
We ensure every business owner is supported, and with either of our franchise models you will be provided with key support tailored to your personal requirements, this includes:
- Employment Compliance Support

What do our franchisees say about Kare Plus?
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our franchise owners have said about Kare Plus, the franchise model and the support we provide.
“I employ over 350 people and my business turns over £6,000,000 a year. Something that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Kare Plus.”
Imran Qureshi, Kare Plus Oxford
“When the market crashed in 2014, we began researching new sectors and we both really liked the healthcare industry. As it’s domestic and not subject to international pressures too much, and with an ageing population, it is steadily growing and presenting many good opportunities.”
Andy Boardman & Jo Boardman, Kare Plus Southport & Kare Plus Blackpool
“Before we started, the marketing team worked with us to create a coming soon campaign, while they also ran a national recruitment campaign. This meant we had numerous applicants from the start, which was very beneficial.”
Mindaugas Sviens & Raminta Navickaite, Kare Plus Exeter
