The opportunity

Almost 12m people in the UK are aged 65 and over, 5.5m are 75+ and 1.6m are 85+. All these figures are growing and will continue to do so. Does m need to be long hand, as million?

An estimated 4 million older adults in the UK have a limiting long-standing illness, equating to 40% of all people aged 65+ (Age UK, 2019, quoting research by Horsfield, 2017). It is estimated that this will rise to over 6m older people by 2030.

But the care market is not limited to older people. Walfinch also cares for working age adults with a specialist care needs, so our franchisees enjoy a variety of business streams, making for better business stability. The demand for care services exponentially surpasses supply and is rising.

There are always people who require care, and with Walfinch you could be the one to provide it.

You take charge of your own success supported by the expertise of a franchisor which provides comprehensive training, ongoing support, proven back-office systems, and an established referrals pipeline. As a Managing Director of your own office, you’ll be one of a network of existing franchisees who support each other.
