As a former Business Lecturer, Samia Ullah knew, like many other women out there, that she wanted to make a name for herself within her local community. That is why she decided to go from the lecture room to owning her own business and her route to market was as a Kare Plus Franchisee.
One of the core elements at the forefront of Samia’s vision was to have a strong local presence that could only be achieved through social value and during the pandemic, she made it her mission to do just that.
Using out-of-the-box thinking and the power of her franchise brand, Samia has orchestrated many campaigns over the last twelve months to deliver social change. From empowering frontline healthcare professionals at London fashion week to spreading Christmas cheer within care homes by working with a local school that designed Christmas cards with personalised messages for the residents to enjoy.
The business has also been at the forefront of care delivery and supported a community rehab centre with the sourcing of PPE to help them continue with their service delivery as well as completing tailored recruitment campaigns to ensure other customer’s needs are always met.
‘When you have a business, regardless of it being a franchise or not, you have a responsibility to set an example and to pave the way for others to follow. This is a value I firmly believe in. Being a business owner puts you in great stead to support others, and that is an invaluable asset to have’. Samia, Kare Plus Croydon.
