Leading homecare provider Right at Home UK has received four nominations for this year’s NatWest Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWiF) Awards. The national awards are taking place virtually on the evening of Thursday 11 March.

The news comes straight off the back of Right at Home scooping an award at the annual Best Franchise Awards which took place on Wednesday 10 February.

Right at Home’s Chief Operating Officer, Lucy Campbell, is shortlisted for Woman Franchisor of the Year, having also won the coveted accolade in 2020. Lucy has played an instrumental role in supporting Right at Home’s network of 65+ offices through the challenges of the pandemic, whilst leading a team of 19 at National Office.

Sam Wright, Managing Director and Franchise Owner of Right at Home High Wycombe and District, is shortlisted in the Woman Franchisee of the Year category. Sam opened Right at Home High Wycombe and District in July 2017 and less than two years later, it was rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission in its first full inspection.

In addition, National People and Brand Development Manager, Heather Keep, who is responsible for Right at Home’s marketing, training and recruitment offering, is shortlisted in the Woman Franchise Employee of the Year category alongside Susie Long, Registered Manager of Right at Home High Wycombe and District.

The annual awards are an opportunity to celebrate women right across the UK, from businesses of all ages and sizes operating in the franchising industry, and this year saw a record numbers of entries.

Speaking on the nominees, Right at Home UK CEO, Ken Deary, said: “On behalf of the Right at Home network, I’d like to congratulate our finalists Lucy, Sam, Heather and Susie.

“I’m delighted our finalists have achieved the recognition they deserve. The past year has seen our Clients rely on our services like never before and our network has worked around the clock to ensure we continue providing the highest quality care and support.

“Sam and Susie are doing an outstanding job supporting their vulnerable Clients to stay safe at home during the pandemic and at National Office, Lucy and Heather ensure our network of Franchise Owners have all the tools, guidance and resources they need at their finger-tips, so they can concentrate their efforts on their Clients and staff.

“I wish all four of our finalists the very best of luck.”
