CARE AND DISABILITY
As well as young and disabled people who need care, we have a growing elderly population. The need for care therefore will increase and we will need more resources to help improve the well-being of people who need care.
has shown that at any given time between 20 and 40 per cent of older adults feel lonely. Chronic loneliness has been shown to increase the chances of an early grave by 14 per cent, which is as bad as being overweight and almost as bad as poverty in undermining a person’s long-term wellbeing. As more people live longer, they are spending a bigger part of their lives feeling lonely. This is having a significant impact on their physical as well as mental health. Loneliness is also becoming more common as people live alone or become isolated from relatives and friends, especially in retirement.
Apart from companionship, home care has many benefits, such as:
Keeping the well-known surroundings of home
Personalised, one-on-one care
Less cost than a care home
Independence and confidence for the person at home
The social impact is seen as providing a better quality of life for people needing care, helping them remain independent for longer.
Social impact could be increased by applying profits to subsiding care for disadvantaged people or funding activities for the elderly and disabled.

BRITISH FRANCHISE ASSOCIATION
In 1977, the major franchise companies in the UK decided to set up their own association. The British Franchise Association (bfa), was formed to act in the interests of the industry as a whole in assessing and accrediting franchising companies as those which meet its criteria for the structure of the franchise business, the terms of the contract between franchisor and franchisee, the testing of the system and its success as a franchise.
On this site, we only feature franchisors who are either:
Full Members of the bfa
Full Members are established franchised businesses with a proven trading and franchising record. They are prepared to have their reputation examined by the bfa, and have an established network of franchisees.
Associate Members of the bfa
Associate Members have proven their ability to launch and support at least one franchised outlet for 12 months and are now in the business of building their network. There will be few franchisees whose experience you can research and a short period of time over which the business has been tested.
