Join a global care giant with community-based values.Watch Video
Established in the US in 1998, Visiting Angels is a global care giant with community-based values. Today, we are one of the largest care franchises in America and proudly support 600+ franchisees across five countries.
We have achieved global success by doing things differently: we put our carers first, with great rates of pay and work-related benefits to ensure they can achieve real work-life balance. Why? Because only happy, loyal carers who feel truly valued can give their all to our clients. Many companies say that they put their carers at the heart of their business, very few actually do it.
We’re a care business the likes of which the UK has never seen before. Our model directly addresses the problems in the market and empowers our caregivers, our clients and our franchisees to reap the benefits for years to come.
We believe that, by treating our carers well, they are empowered to deliver an exceptional service with genuine care. It’s no secret that carer recruitment and retention is an issue for UK companies and, after 20 years, we know how to attract the right people and, most importantly, keep them. Our staff turnover rate is already almost half the national average.
If you’re looking at a franchise in the care sector, then you will no doubt already understand the scope for business growth. The care sector has always been a growing market, and it always will be. Increased life expectancy, better living conditions and pharmaceutical advancements mean people are living far longer than we used to.

Whilst increased life expectancy is to be celebrated, old age brings with it a plethora of complications to health and wellbeing. Retirement ages continue to creep up, meaning sons and daughters - still working - can’t offer the same level of support to aging parents that they once did. Families now tend to live further apart, and the needs of aging loved ones become increasingly complicated. Calling on the services of a care company is no longer a last resort, it’s a necessity.
Profit. It isn’t a dirty word. 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.
Initial training is your opportunity to learn from our industry experts; people who have spent decades in both the care and the franchise industry, and who know how to make this business work. For your first week’s training, you’ll fly out to our worldwide Headquarters in Philadelphia. Once back home, its straight into week two of training at our UK Head Office. This intensive training course covers:
We don’t believe in training you once and sending you on your way. We provide regular, ongoing training for the life of your franchise. A combination of e-learning, live webinars, group and one-to-one sessions provide a comprehensive programme, designed to help you to be the best business owner you can be.
Setting up a care business is a complex process. That’s why we’re with you every step of the way. And this is where our international size and scale really comes into its own – we’ve honed the support we offer our 600+ franchisees over the last 20 years and now, bring the very best to you.
We recognise that one of the main reasons for joining any franchise brand, is to benefit from a wealth of knowledge and expertise as you launch and grow your own new business. We’re committed to delivering exactly that.
Our goal is to welcome ten new franchisees into the Visiting Angels UK franchise family by the end of 2019. By the end 2020, we plan to have 20 successful business owners operating across the length and breadth of the country. So, if you:
