“The past year has been a real challenge for me, so winning is extremely special. I want to say a huge thank you to our franchise owner Alastair Shanks who has been so supportive over the past ten years and thank you to the judges who thought I deserved this award.”

Right at Home GF managing director Alastair Shanks said: “We are so proud of Sara. She is fiercely passionate about people’s right to receive high-quality care and having been with us since 2013, she has been able to embed this standard into our business.
