Bumps and Bashes is a children and baby first aid course which was established in 2009 to give parents, grandparents and carers the skills required to assist a child in medical distress – perhaps even to save a life.
The courses are award-winning and although focused on children and babies do extend to adult choking and CPR as well. Each course is given by a fully qualified instructor who understands first aid and how to teach it in a non-pressured, easy going, friendly yet informative way. There is no point in scaring parents with the information when it can be taught differently and is much more useful.
At the end of each class those who attended will receive a paediatric first aid book to take home with them which will reiterate the important information given to them in the class and which they can read through at their own pace. This means that parents don’t have to take notes during the course and can focus their attention entirely on what they are learning.
There are also free refresher courses as well as private classes on a one to one basis if that is the preferred method of learning.
According to research published by Statista the UK market size of the wellness & fitness segment has been growing steadily & is estimated to reach £22bn by 2020. When broken down by category, the greatest increases are to be made in alternative medicine, sports equipment & weight loss, which made up the majority of the market in past years, along with gym memberships. The growth of the market is also reflected in the number of sports and fitness occupations held in the UK, which also show a steady increase in years past. The majority of employees in the sport activities sector are between 25 and 54 years old, with slightly more men than women working in the sector.
This has also given rise to more fitness and well being franchises including franchises of gyms, workout classes, children fitness classed, weight loss group & classes. With the UK government stating that unless we change our habits that more people will become obese the need and it would seem demand for more of this type of franchise is sure to increase and become an even more potentially lucrative market.
Developing a “fit” and healthy business takes time, hard work and dedication. Also as with any business purchase or franchise get professional help & advice and know what your commitment is before you invest.
Residential Care Homes
According to the UK governments care homes study 30th November 2017 the care homes sector is worth around £15.9 billion a year, with around 410,000 residents. They calculate that there are 5,500 different care service providers in the UK operating 11,300 care homes for the elderly. Approx 95% of their beds are provided by the independent sector (both for-profit & charities ). Government local authorities generally commission care services from independent care providers. On average the cost for a self-funder in 2016 was £846 per week (nearly £44,000 per year), while Local authorities paid around £621 per week.
UKHCA estimate that total local authority expenditure on domiciliary care services in the UK in 2014/15 was £3.9 billion. As personalisation or self-directed support policy progresses nationally,the uptake of direct payments has increased. UKHCA estimate that totallocal authority expenditure on direct payments in the UK in 2014/15 was £1.5 billion. There has been a trend in England over recent years for NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) to purchase social care and health services from the independent and voluntary sector. In 2014/15 total CCG expenditure on non-NHS care services was £2.3 billion. At this time we do not have more detailed expenditure analysis available or domiciliary care specific expenditure data. Data on expenditure by people who self-fund their care is sparse. UKHCA estimate that expenditure on domiciliary care by self-funders in 2014/15 was £713 million.
With this very large and apparently growing sector there are many different opportunities to start a business with a domestic & care home franchise, providing care in peoples homes via a home care franchise or domiciliary care franchise or setting up a residential care home franchise business.
