Healthy operating profits, award-winning support and a rewarding opportunity to change the way older people are cared for in the UK

Established in the UK in 2005, Home Instead was the first of its kind, disrupting the market, introducing an ‘in home care’ model to the social care landscape. 

Today, Home Instead continues to be the household name for home care, building strong relationships with the wider healthcare sector and being a forward-facing company that people aspire to work for, work with or recommend.

Widely acknowledged as industry leading, not only for their successful business model, but for the outstanding care it provides, Home Instead provide a supportive and growing network of over 255 franchise offices across the UK, and a 70 strong national office, meaning franchisees are provided with all they need to thrive.

Home Instead Senior Care Heart

Home Instead leads from the front

Home Instead is led by a powerhouse in the care sector, Martin Jones MBE. Initially joining the sector following his experience in caring for his father who needed support, Martin came to understand the importance of home care and the positive impact it could have on families like his.

Shortly after, Martin joined Home Instead, initially as Chief Operating Officer in 2011. He went on to be Managing Director and then CEO – overseeing over 255 franchise offices that deliver care to thousands of clients.  Martin was made an MBE in 2023’s New Year Honours for services to older people.

Your chance to build a substantial business

The home care sector is booming, we have an ageing population and families are increasingly making this their preferred choice for their loved ones. Home Instead’s impressive growth reflects this rise in popularity.

Home Instead provides an opportunity to own a scaleable business which is rewarding in more ways than one. Many Home Instead franchisees have gone on to build significant multi-million-pound businesses, with two or more territories.

As well as a small number of new territories, there are also some resales available which are existing successful businesses with a client base, an office team and dedicated care professionals.

Home Instead Awards

Join the team

To be part of Home Instead’s continuing success and growing network, there is now limited time to secure your own franchise office and make a positive impact in your local community.

Home Instead franchisees receive full and ongoing training, guidance and advice, benefitting from an exceptional business model that has been proven since the business was established almost 20 years ago in the UK.

As a management franchise, experience in the care sector isn’t essential, however a desire to care for others, the development of your team and to grow your business utilising your previous career experiences and skill-set are required.

With final territories remaining, there are opportunities in the North East, East of England, Northern Ireland and Wales both new and resale opportunities.

Gavin Morrigan & Michelle Fairless - The North East

According to the National Statistics, by 2024, 21.7% of the population in the North East will be over the age of 65, compared to 18% in 2014, this demonstrates a strong growth of clients in the area and in new Home Instead territories.

Gavin Morrigan and Michelle Fairless, the owners of Home Instead Cleveland have grown a strong Home Instead presence in the North East, with a positive reputation across the area.

Here, they tell us more about their journey so far with the UK’s number 1 Home Care company:

Gavin Morrigan and Michelle Fairless

Following redundancy and finding ourselves at a crossroads with what to do next in life, we were exploring a number of different options, though having both been made redundant on a couple of occasions previously, working for someone else in an HR environment or setting up a HR Consultancy or finance related business was not appealing.

We thought about franchising but knew little about it and so, by chance, we heard there was a franchising exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham so decided to attend. We heard a speaker from another Home Instead office giving an overview and answering FAQs on a general panel of franchise representatives and the Home Instead representative struck a chord with both of us, leading us to visit the Home Instead exhibition stand to find out more.

The business model seemed to make perfect sense and coupled with Michelle’s passion for elderly care following her own life experiences, we wanted to find out more, once we did, we never looked back.

By April we had set up our Ltd company, by May we were on New Owner Training and by June we had opened our doors, less than 4 months from knowing anything about franchising least of all, Home Instead.

With positive support from National Office, we networked and developed new ways of broadening our name and reputation in the community receiving more and more recommendations.

One highlight was discovering the National Office Fraud Public Education Programme as we felt this was a unique way to ‘give’ to the many groups and communities across our territory something that would benefit everyone, but particularly aimed at older and vulnerable groups, whilst helping to showcase our company and reach many more people.

We approached our Local Police and Crime Commissioner with a bid to promote a large number of fraud presentations across the Cleveland Police Force area, soon becoming experts in scams and frauds. From this, our exposure snowballed in many communities as we continued to follow the model and build upon our growing reputation as being the best care company.

We have continued to take advantage of the fantastic support and initiatives provided by Home Instead’s National Office as we look to continue our growth and provide outstanding levels of care.

Joining Home Instead was absolutely the right decision for us and the only time we look back is to see how far we’ve come.
