Extra Help - Care Franchise

The award-winning business network that is bringing top-quality service to the home-help sector!

Extra Help is a multi-award-winning franchise network that provides home-help and domestic cleaning services to many different types of people, including:

  • The elderly
  • Parents
  • Working professionals.

Our services include cleaning and gardening, companionship and respite for carers, dog-walking, meal preparation, helping out with children, and so much more!

Extra Help - Care Franchise

Founded by Claire Robinson, a single mum and entrepreneur passionate about helping others, Extra Help currently has 35 franchises operating throughout the UK. An astonishing 3.5 million homes now have access to Extra Help’s home help and cleaning services.

The Extra Help business model is simple but highly effective. As a franchise owner, your role is to find your clients and recruit suitable home-helpers to respond to their requirements. Home-helpers are self-employed, so there’s no payroll to manage.

It’s a flexible business that you can grow at your own pace whilst making a massive difference in people’s lives. You can choose to work as many hours as you want, meaning you will enjoy a healthy work/life balance.

“I can’t imagine a better way of running a business that is so worthwhile as well as giving me the flexibility in my work-life balance that I want.”

Heather, Monmouth

What Does Extra Help Do?

Extra Help is known for providing reliable and trustworthy help in homes across the UK.

Whilst we help many different types of people, we have a passion for helping the elderly and vulnerable remain independent and stay in their homes. This means that as well as providing cleaning services, we also deliver much-needed companionship, meal preparation, transport to social and medical appointments, etc. We bring clients the reassurance that they, or their loved ones, are in the best possible hands by personally interviewing and reference-checking all of our home-helpers.

We are proud of our integrity and brand values:

  • Trust
  • Caring
  • Kindness
  • Personal

  • Professional
  • Passionate about our business.

“So great being part of the Extra Help Family and sharing our experiences and knowledge across the company knowing that everyone is in the same boat helps massively.”
