Sami Haider is the new franchisee for SureCare Southend, while Dean Bush has taken on the territory of Merton and Wandsworth. Sami has an extensive background working for local authorities in various management roles, while Dean has over 14 years’ qualified social work experience.
Dean is vastly experienced in care planning, support planning and reviewing care plans. He has worked with adults and children including those suffering from spinal injuries and learning disabilities. He also has extensive knowledge of fostering and child protection.
SureCare Southend was previously owned by Sharan Dhillon and has established strong links within the local community, which Sami will now be looking to develop further over the coming months.
Gary Farrer, SureCare’s MD, said: “We are delighted to have two new franchisees of the calibre of Dean and Sami. Both know care inside out but are also ambitious and keen to build their own business success stories.”
SureCare now has over 30 franchises and company branches across the UK with a number of other franchises in the pipeline.
Gary added: “We will be announcing a further four new franchisees in the coming weeks as more ambitious business people join the SureCare family. Our franchisees like the fact that we offer so many revenue streams as well as providing a strong brand and an experienced head office management team ready to help them build a successful business.”
Sami has already benefited from the support of head office with SureCare tender specialist Clare Roberts helping him to be chosen by Essex County Council. She said: “Writing a tender is one of the most time consuming and demanding tasks. I recently engaged Clare to assist with tenders for Essex County Council with an extremely tight deadline. It has been strategically important for growth to extend our services in the Essex area and Clare was brilliant in dealing with this. Needless to say we were successful with our submissions.”
