Leading UK homecare company Right at Home has been shortlisted for the Leadership & Culture accolade at the bfa HSBC Franchise Awards, to be held at the Vox, Birmingham, on 27th June 2019.
Right at Home’s UK operation is owned by CEO Ken Deary. Ken’s career as a franchisor and prior to this, a franchisee, spans more than 25 years. Last month, Right at Home celebrated the signing of two new Franchise Agreements, taking its network up to 59 franchisees.
The company provides high quality homecare to Clients living in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own home. It is the most highly rated national homecare agency on the UK’s leading independent review site homecare.co.uk, with an 9.8/10 rating.
The annual bfa awards are the flagship event in the franchising calendar and getting a nomination in itself is a major achievement, proving the business works ethically and in the best interests of franchisees and staff, fighting off many other companies vying for the accolade.

Andrew Brattesani, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said: “Right at Home has shown that it really listens to its entire network to refine best practice, and its commitment to its franchisees and staff are why it has been nominated in the Leadership & Culture category.
“I wish them the best of luck as they compete for the award.”

We place great emphasis on fostering an open and honest culture right across the Network, at every level, so we are pleased that this has been recognised.”
