Award Winning 

'Extra Help' Franchise Enquiries

Own your own business and be part of an award winning franchise, set up to respond to the needs of home help for elderly people who are still living independently and need a helping hand. 

Welcome to the Extra Help Franchise Opportunity

Are you a kind and caring person who would love to run a business helping others? Extra Help is a home-help and domestic services 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 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.

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. 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

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 ÂŁ200 + VAT only payable from month 4. After your first year, fees increase to ÂŁ250 + 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 £7,000 per month, and others are bringing close to that per month, proving that Extra Help is a viable and lucrative business opportunity.

Join Our Family

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 meetups and, of course, our Annual Conference.

Testimonials From Franchisees

Claire has been hugely instrumental in supporting me since I came on board with Extra Help. Claire has tremendous expertise in the field of Franchising and is always ready to act as a mentor to help achieve business success! Claire is quick to recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of everyone in her business network. I highly recommend Claire!

Nealem Stephens - Extra Help, Maidenhead & Windsor

I've known Claire for 15 years now and all I can say is that she is one inspirational lady. Even when I first knew Claire (our sons grew up together) she was always very driven and passionate about her ventures and has made a real success of herself and her businesses.

The difference with Claire is that, even with this drive, passion and dedication and extremely busy life, she always has time to speak to me and share her thoughts, which helps me a lot and something that always value greatly.

Claire is an absolute inspiration to me and I would imagine lots of others as well. She has single-handedly raised her three wonderful children and has coupled that with managing several businesses at the same time - and still making time for her friends and colleagues, who I know mean a great deal her.

Claire has helped me in recent years to believe in myself and is watching me grow my own successful business. It is solely down to her and the help and kindness that Claire has provided and shown that has set me on my own path and I am very proud and grateful to know her.

Denise Cooper - Extra Help, Rickmansworth

I have been working in my Extra Help franchise for a few months now, and am particularly happy with all the helpful and speedy support I get from Claire when I have any queries. It is also fantastic to work in a business where I know I am making a really positive difference to my clients' lives!
