About Acacia Homecare
Run a care business how it should be run, not how it once was. Husband and wife team, Minal and Sanj Chowdhri, ripped up the playbook of how domiciliary care businesses had been run since the days of local authority commissioning, and revolutionised the organisation structure and business process to benefit from the ever-increasing private sector. Be part of this enhanced business model, and benefit from a better way of managing your own business.
Our mission is to grow responsibly to become the best provider of care to the private sector by offering high quality care from a mature, well trained, experienced, and happy team.
Acacia Homecare aims to become the standard to which care is measured.
Acacia Homecare have been recognised as one of the Top 20 Home Care Groups in the UK in 2023, based on reviews from service users/clients and their family/friends. Top 20 Large & Mid-size Home Care Groups category. Read More Here
Our current franchisees will testify that our franchise model works and is realistic. Acacia Homecare follows a unique organizational structure and uses a care system that has been built in partnership to satisfy the needs of the business, which benefits the entire franchise network. We have a very collaborative approach and the franchise network works together as a team.
By becoming an Acacia Homecare franchise, you are not on your own and you have access to a wealth of knowledge and tools to help you succeed in your business. The training is provided directly by the founders of the business; tailored for each individual franchisee on a one to one basis.
- The total value of the UK care industry is £51.5 billion
- 950,000+ people are receiving domiciliary care in the UK
- £7 billion is spent on domiciliary care alone in the UK*
With an increasing need from an ageing population and heightened focus on support for people suffering from learning disabilities and mental health conditions - coupled with more people wishing to remain at home - the retreat of local authority funding turns small opportunities into a growing need, ready for those with the right care concept and business mindset to step into the gap.
Training and support provided
Our training is not limited to the setting-up phase of your business. As well as guidance on the initial set up, our training and support programme is ongoing, and individually tailored to each franchisee; provided as and when needed through face to face meetings and digital sessions. There is no end date for training and various support groups have been set up by the franchisor for franchisees to regularly attend.
Ongoing training encompasses a wide range of topics, from the mechanics of running a franchise, to marketing, recruitment, IT, accounting and administration. Acacia Homecare has developed its own support, training and development package which is delivered by the team that not only wrote it, but also experienced and developed it from the start of the business.
The delivery methods vary, featuring a combination of classroom training, e-learning, workshops and practical experience with other professionals.
The Acacia Homecare franchise package includes:
- An exclusive franchise territory
- Sales and marketing support, including a marketing literature pack
- Professional guidance to secure financing, if needed
- Ongoing support, training and development package

The Acacia Homecare franchise fee is £22,950 + VAT, however, if you have at least £15,000 in available liquid capital, financing can be secured via many of the high street banks (subject to approval). Alternatively, you may qualify for the Government backed Business Start-Up Scheme which allows you to borrow up to £25,000 without investing any money of your own.

Acacia Homecare's history
Acacia Homecare opened its doors in 2012 and we are now celebrating 10 years of service. It was set up by husband and wife team Minal and Sanjeev Chowdhri with the vision of being there to help people do the things they want to do.
We didn’t want to follow the crowd but be the industry leader and pave the way to show what care could really be. Our mutual respect for our employees, as well as the customer we look after and putting them at the forefront of the business, elevated Acacia Homecare to a new level in the care sector. Wanting to take this same model and replicate to different parts of the country the franchise brand was born with two other businesses opening in Reading and Stockport.
Over the pandemic period the franchisees saw an average of 35% business growth, contradictory to what many other sectors were experiencing. The health care sector is resilient to most risk as care is a necessity and not a luxury, proving long term sustainability and steady growth.
