The story of our home care franchise

Avant founder Sally Graham started her first business in 1996 as a franchisee, building a highly successful multi-site operation covering 9 territories and turning over more than £12 million. Sally sold her business to one of the UK’s top five home care companies in 2010 to begin work on her new venture.

Sally established Avant with a vision in mind from the start: to share her knowledge, experience and track record to help others to start and develop thriving home care businesses, replicating her own success in local communities across the UK. Joined by Deepa Dungar, who had run the operational side of Sally's franchise, the duo set out to prove their business model before inviting others to join them as franchisees.


To develop Avant’s franchise model alongside Sally and Deepa, highly experienced care franchisor Mike Horgan was brought in to the business. Mike has worked in care for 30 years, including previously heading up up a £320-million operation in health and social care, which included the market leader in franchised domiciliary care services at the time. The trio are a formidable leadership team of unrivalled experience and expertise.

Thanks to her decades in the care sector and the people around her, Sally has the practical exposure and experience to help Avant franchisees enjoy the same success she has. Her vision from the start was to create a successful franchise network that provides high quality services which make a real difference to the dignity and independence of people in need of care. 

With franchisees trading from the south-east to the north-west, that vision is well on the way to becoming reality.

“We chose Avant because we want to emulate Sally’s success. She has done it before, twice in fact, refining the business model over the past 20 years. The team are passionate about standards, about guiding us to succeed; after all, the better we support our customers, the more successful we are, the more successful Avant is! It’s a win-win situation for all.”
