The Guisborough based home care provider is no stranger to collecting awards, having previously been shortlisted for a bfa HSBC award. They have also twice claimed the top Caremark award of Franchisee of the Year in 2011 and 2014.
Managing Director and finalist Charles Folkes said: “I was delighted to learn that I am shortlisted for an award in the Olderpreneur category of this year’s HSBC bfa Franchisee of the Year awards.
“Much of the credit must go to my dedicated team who work relentlessly to deliver a high quality service to the vulnerable people who we support.
“The Caremark system and support from the Franchisor Head Office team is also a major contributor in facilitating the business to grow and thrive.
“We are in a people business and I work hard to maintain a culture of valuing our team and putting people before profit.”
The home care provider operates a large, community based business in Guisborough, providing jobs for local people and delivering a high quality, personalized care service to vulnerable individuals in their local area.
Charles Folkes will now go forward for the final stage of judging in his category and if successful, will then be in the running with other finalists to be crowned the bfa HSBC Franchisee of the Year 2016.
