Dear J

Thank you for your question. Before you start it might be worth you have a look at the guidance on the QCS website as this will walk you through the steps you need to take.  The CQC website have a set by step guide also that you may find useful. It is also important you do your market research to make sure there is a need for a dom care agency in your area. This will be an important part of your business planning as you will need to evidence local need.
