How does the franchise model work?
Guardian Angel Carers is by your side - every step of the way.
The company provides you with everything you need to set up and grow a sustainable and profitable franchise. Its models build in profit to create a solid financial outlook for your franchise.
Franchisees are provided with a high ratio of personal and business support, with access to Guardian Angel Carers’ expert team - across all functions - as they set up and then manage their home care franchise branch and services.
You’ll also be joining a friendly franchise family, who are all keen to share knowledge and support each other in their collective desire to be an industry leader in-home care.
Guardian Angel Carers doesn’t just say - it does. The company’s HQ rolls up its sleeves to run its award-winning and Care Quality Commission outstanding (awarded in 2018) branch.
It means the company is a family that both understand and (as any parent company should) leads by example. This proactive approach means Guardian Angel Carers can positively and continually evolve its home care services so that you can be the leading home care provider in your territory.
Spelthorne franchisee Lou Cobban says: “Christina and the HQ franchise team will always talk about ‘we’ - ‘we’ are going to do this, ‘we’ will achieve this, ‘we’ will do that. It really makes me feel like we’re a team.”
You can meet Guardian Angel Carers’ franchise founder, team and members of the franchise family at the company’s regular webinars (or during discovery days when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted).
What type of franchisee is Guardian Angel Carers looking for?
The company wants to recruit talented and driven people - from care or business backgrounds - who can lead to succeed with energy and compassion and help Guardian Angel Carers grow its family of franchises and reach more people in the UK with its friendly, positive and enabling home care services.
You don’t have to be from the care sector to join Guardian Angel Carers, but the company believes it’s important that you care about owning a business that can make a difference.
You will need to have leadership qualities that can inspire, a drive to innovate and be fast to problem solve. You should also be willing to roll up your sleeves and embrace all aspects of running a home care business and support a team whose work is mentally and emotionally demanding, but incredibly rewarding.
What training and support is provided?
Every day you’ll feel valued and involved as a member of an inclusive business that welcomes you, your ideas and values your contribution.
In the spirit of Christina’s Olympian values, mentoring, training and individual coaching is a continual and integral part of the way Guardian Angel Carers works.
It’s something the company provides for every member of its CareAngel, HQ and franchise family. Every franchisee will also receive the support of an external, independent coach to support their professional development.
Guardian Angel Carers has created comprehensive programmes for care training that you and your CareAngels will use, plus access to employee well-being programmes. The company is proud to be shortlisted for the Great British National Care Awards 2020 in the Care Employer of the Year category.

How in demand are the services provided by Guardian Angel Carers?
The care sector is a top-five growth area in the UK.
Because of the country’s growing ageing population, the NHS and social care are looking to the care sector to support both the elderly and younger adults who need help to live independently at home.
Home care will be an integral part of the solution to ease that pressure as we move towards a ‘home first’ strategy. As a result, demand for home care providers with high-level knowledge and skill will continue to increase and present exciting franchise opportunities.
