A Great Opportunity
Choosing a Franchise, with so many options on offer, need not be a difficult task. Low cost start up, with excellent earning potential, good security and positive cash flow are the principal points to consider.
A home maintenance service for the growing population of those over 65.
Since 2011, Senior Citizen Services has played a huge part in helping elderly people remain in their homes. A much needed service, especially since government cuts and agencies using a ‘handyman’ service at a reasonable cost is no longer available. Demand is relentless for a trusted service carried out by those who care.
To grow the service throughout the UK. With affordable set up costs, and excellent earning potential. To achieve this we require people with a good all round experience in property maintenance, and a caring, patient approach with traditional values.

What can you expect from us?
Your phone ringing from day one!
We handle all aspects of promotion in your designated area. We cover every aspect of ensuring all elderly people in your area are fully aware of their local SCS operator, and the services on offer. This, plus extensive advertising, ensures income from the day you start.
- Sustainable work
- Good earning potential whilst making a difference in your local community
Whilst the principal of the operation remains the same for everyone, we accept that all applicants will have a specialist or preferred field. We adapt the promotion and publicity in your area to suit your personal qualities and experience. However, changing a light bulb, replacing a tap washer or fixing the back gate, is a must!
The choice is yours, however it should be recognised that “recommendation” is the most successful way to grow and expand your business. The area allocated to you is very generous giving you the opportunity to expand your business if and when you decide, notwithstanding the continued efforts from us.
What can I earn?
This is dependant on your individual efforts. Based on statistics, a franchisee should be able to recoup their initial investment within 6 months of trading and generate a substantial salary.
How much do I need to invest?
An SCS Franchise cost depends on area sizes and populations. A final figure is determined by us after considerable demographic evaluation. You are not under any obligation until after an initial interview and the price is confirmed.
Your unique territory will also be confirmed at the outset and we will never sell more than one franchise in any area. Unlike many other Franchises our monthly subscription is just £40.00.
The initial interview is held in your local area at no cost to you.
What is my role?
You will be involved in every aspect of the business, accounts and administration, handle incoming calls, planning the work load and resolving any problems.
We can assist with many of these points if required and you will receive our support in every respect.
We handle all the calls to our 0800 number and pass any enquiries directly to you.
