Visiting Angels

A homecare provider that is different to all others.

We’re the only care franchise that adopts a ‘carer-centric’ philosophy, ensuring our care givers are looked after so they can help those most in need.

Why should you join our team?

We’re a care franchise, done differently.

There’s no doubt that this industry throws tough challenges your way, particularly regarding recruitment and staff retention, and many entrepreneurs believe that these challenges outweigh the advantages.

We’re here to tell you that this is not true. At Visiting Angels, we understand that this type of work is exhausting, and our carer-centric values are the solution to the challenges mentioned above.

We listen to and celebrate our staff, ensuring that they are happy, motivated, and able to give their all when caring for clients. After all, you cannot care for those in need when you are not cared for yourself!

Visiting Angels

Some ways we prioritise our staff’s wellbeing:

  • Excellent rates of pay, with at least a 5% increase each year
  • Celebrations for personal and professional milestones
  • Healthcare advice and support
  • E-bike scheme (we’re the first care franchise to introduce low-emission alternative transport)
  • Pension scheme
  • Loyalty bonuses
  • A company mobile phone
  • Team events and social days for our carers

Our 20+ years of success have given us plenty of time and experience to perfect our business model. The result is a global network of over 600 franchisees from North America to the UK and South Korea. Worldwide we have more than 15,000 clients who rely on our incredible caregivers.

The support you’ll receive

Carer recruitment and retention is a significant issue for the UK care sector. We take this seriously, and ensure that we focus on our carers first, before making profits.

As a result, our staff turnover rate is almost half of the national average! With approximately 88% of our staff staying with Visiting Angels, we can justify our training spend and offer complex and sophisticated care to those who need it.

We do everything we can to give you confidence in what you’re doing from the moment you begin your new career. We achieve this by providing:

  • Comprehensive training before and throughout your time as a franchise operator
  • Assistance in CQC registration
  • Essential set-up tasks
  • Locating ideal premises
  • Staff recruitment and retainment
  • Marketing and networking

Visiting Angels

ROI potential

It’s okay to want to make money in the care sector. At Visiting Angels, we trust that you want to make a difference too. We are confident that if you follow our model and employ our values, you can replicate our results, including:

  • Six-figure turnover by the end of year one.
  • £1 million turnover in year three.
  • Net operating profit of between 15% and 20%.

Our achievements

Visiting Angels

Visiting Angels

Visiting Angels is proud to be among the 2022 bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards finalists in two categories – Emerging Franchisor and Leadership & Culture. This is a testament to our strength, resilience and unique ‘carer-centric’ approach.

We became a bfa Associate member at the start of 2022.

Our network is the fastest-growing homecare franchise in the UK, with 60+ franchisees across the country.

The industry average staff turnover stands at 40%. At Visiting Angels, our retention rate is just 12%. Most of those who leave do so due to changes in personal circumstances rather than dissatisfaction with our company.
