Home Instead celebrates double award recognition

by Kirsty Kirsty

Home Instead are celebrating the news that two of its franchise owners have been shortlisted in the British Franchise Association HSBC Franchise Awards which recognise excellence in ethical franchising.

Anitra Camargo owns the Windsor, Runnymede and West Spelthorne office and has been named a finalist in the ‘Community Focus’ category. This is in recognition of her work to rebuild her local community post-pandemic which has seen her organising events to support the community and share Home Instead’s expertise in areas such as dementia and Parkinson’s as well as raising funds for charities such as Dementia Carers Support Runnymede.

Owner of Home Instead Glasgow North and six other territories, Suhail Rehman, is a finalist in the ‘HSBC Best in Class Multi Unit Single Brand’ category. Suhail plays a key part in the communities his Home Instead businesses are based in. This includes running seven memory cafes which provide a safe and supportive environment for people living with dementia and their families.

Pip Wilkins, Chief Executive of the BFA said: “We would like to offer our enormous congratulations to all this year’s finalists. We received a huge amount of entries, and it was wonderful to read of all the amazing work being done in the UK franchising sector. We applaud our finalists for their enthusiasm, dedication and tenacity and for continuing to uphold the highest standards of the association.”

The annual BFA awards are a highlight and are dubbed the Oscars of the franchise world. Ruth Brown, COO of Home Instead UK and a board member of the BFA said, “We are really proud of Anitra and Suhail.

“They are both running businesses that make a difference to the lives of so many and giving so much back to their local communities.

“Our congratulations go to Anitra and Suhail – best wishes to them and all other finalists who will come together on November 9th when the winners will be announced at a gala black-tie event.”
