Good Oaks Franchising


Southampton and Romsey

This Month’s Home Care Territory Spotlight is Southampton and Romsey.


Good Oaks Home Care’s Southampton Territory includes Southampton, Romsey, Eastleigh and other small towns and extends into Hampshire.

The demographics and location are ideal for a home care franchise start-up: a large population of 103,718 people, with over 48,000 people over the age of 60.

The location would also work well for a Good Oaks Home Care franchise due to the proximity of our existing operations. Our New Forest home care franchise has found that cross-pollination of both clients and carers has allowed for quick, sustainable growth while reducing overheads.

The unique closeness to Good Oaks’ HQ gives some serious advantages:

  • Carer training taken care of by the dedicated in-house trainer in Head Office in Poole, saving time, money and office space needed for local training facilities
  • Support and advice only 45 minutes away, allowing us to be even more responsive to both urgent and non-urgent enquiries
  • Ability to use our office for meetings, interviews etc when required
  • Cross-pollination of client and job-seeker enquiries online and through local reputation
  • Local knowledge of Local Authority and NHS contracts
