The Opportunity

Carlton Hayward, our founder, started HaywardBefriending over 10 years ago and has decided to offer a unique franchise opportunity in this highly rewarding business sector. However, building a business takes a lot of hard work!

• The UK population is projected to continue growing, reaching over 74 million by 2039. The population in the UK is getting older with 18% aged 65 and over and 2.4% aged 85 and over. In 2016 there were 285 people aged 65 and over for every 1,000 people aged 16 to 64 years (“traditional working age”) which is 28.5%. (Source www.ons.co.uk)

• The ageing population: key issues for the 2010 Parliament. 10 million people in the UK are over 65 years old. The latest projections are for 5½ million more elderly people in 20 years time (2018) and the number will have nearly doubled to around 19 million by 2050 this may be underestimated in 2010.

• In 2017/2018 the number of workers in the care sector in England was 1.6 million and increase of 21% since 2009 without including NHS and there are circa 110,000 vacancies at any given time (Source www.skillsforcare.org.uk)
