A Great Big Hello From Extra Help Manchester South
Over the years, I'd have used Extra Help myself ...

Hello! My name is Sue Martin and I am thrilled to say that I am the owner of Extra Help Manchester South. My background is in nursing and I think it was whilst working as a District Nurse I began to develop a passion for working with individuals in the home ...
Machester is a thriving metropolitan area and I'm thrilled to have found a franchise that fits in with my passions and lets me work in such a vibrant place!

Over the last twelve years, I have been chief officer with several local charities across the Greater Manchester area which have supported individuals and families with social care needs, those in difficult family situations and children with disabilities.
I grew up in the Midlands before moving to Manchester in 1987 for work. As I look back, I know that I would have used many of the Extra Help services over the years if they had been available then. I was a working mum with no family nearby, so it would have been a godsend to have had the mum's help service.
As a busy professional, working long and often unsociable hours, the helping hand in the home service would have given me more quality time with the family on my precious days off without worrying about the household chores.
Having Extra Help available to offer companionship and support to elderly relatives who lived so far away, would have enabled them to remain in their home a little longer and given me peace of mind.
But that was the past and this is very much about looking to the future. I knew I wanted to be able to set up a reliable, quality home service with the flexibility to meet the needs of the people who use it and which echoed my caring values.
When I heard about the Extra Help franchise, I studied everything I could to find out more about it and then met with Claire and Louise. I knew I had found my ideal organisation which shared my ethos.
"I am delighted to be bringing Extra Help to people in South Manchester!"
The area covers postcodes M20-M41 and WA13-16 and offers a wide range of services including domestic cleaning, help and companionship for the elderly, mum's help and much more.
If you, or someone you know, may benefit from a helping hand, please contact me on 0161 410 0040 or drop me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Until next time ...
