Daisy First Aid provides training for parents and carers in the form of two-hour classes. What makes them special is the fact that they bring the training to their homes or local venues.

You can take the franchise to your local areas, and you can be the face of your franchise with local advertising.

There are also no additional fees for the first 12 months of you running your business.
The industry and its benefits
The Health and Beauty industry has an average turnover of 6.2 billion a year, an astounding statistic which shows that the industry is immensely popular. This is an industry with the potential to provide flexible employment, and the opportunities of running your own salon or mobile business. 42% of Health and Beauty industry employees are self-employed, which means that there is plenty of scope to become a franchisee and be in control of their own career and progression.
If you have a qualification in beauty therapy, nutrition, physiotherapy or hairdressing, you will understand the industry and be at an advantage. However, a background in health and beauty isn’t essential. What matters is the desire to take your career into your own hands and a business-orientated mind.
