Yourcarehome.co.uk and Make It Cheaper are collaborating to help care homes reduce their overheads and improve their marketing efforts for free
In collaboration with Make It Cheaper, Yourcarehome.co.uk has launched a new section to their website, “Energy Saving Services.” This service is free for care homes to use and designed to give them a well needed boost to help save money and increase profitability. In addition to saving money on their energy costs care homes will also receive free listings on yourcarehome.co.uk to help with their marketing.
Yourcarehome.co.uk is a leading web based resource for people looking to find a care home for themselves or a loved one.
Mark Sadler founder of yourcarehome.co.uk said
“Care homes are having a really tough time at the minute being squeezed by local authorities who are paying less year on year to care homes to place residents. Meanwhile overheads and especially energy prices are going through the roof.
”As a small business owner and a former buyer, I decided to take action myself to help care homes reduce their overheads and become more profitable”
”I first met Make It Cheaper almost a year ago, and was instantly struck by their remit which is to provide a simple, free and most importantly honest energy switching service.
Make It Cheaper understand the problems faced by care homes, and we’re really pleased that they have offered to help. They don’t only save money on gas and electricity suppliers for business; they also switch landlines, broadband, mobile phone and even merchant services.
Make It Cheaper are the largest business energy switching company in the UK and they are also proud to boast household names such as Moneysupermarket and GoCompare amongst the companies they provide switching services for.
Like us they are a young dynamic company, with a genuine desire to help their customers, there is real social benefit in the work they do
The average care home in the UK has 22 beds and an occupancy rate of 90% It is likely to have up to 6 self funding residents and 14 residents funded by social services at a rate which is well below the actual cost of providing care. It really is tough for care home owners to make ends meet. Typically care homes do not advertise online, as historically they have not needed to, but as the local authorities continue to squeeze the budgets, care homes will be forced to market themselves to a wider audience.
Yourcarehome.co.uk and Make It Cheaper have arranged that every care home switching their energy will receive a free listing with yourcarehome.co.uk to help improve their online marketing activity and hopefully fill some of those empty beds which could mean the difference between making a profit or a loss.
