Family-run specialist rehabilitation and care group shortlisted for two awards in prestigious Family Business United Awards 2020
A family-run specialist rehabilitation and care group has started the new year with a bang after being shortlisted for two highly sought accolades in the prestigious Family Business United Awards 2020.
Askham Village Community, a family-run group of five specialist rehab centres and care homes on the edge of Doddington, Cambridgeshire, has been shortlisted in the ‘East and East Anglia’ category of the acclaimed awards for both Family Business of the Year and the People’s Choice Awards 2020.
A family-run business of over 30 years, Askham provides specialist care and rehab for the very young to the elderly, offering day visits, respite or long-term care, goal-focused rehabilitation, and continuing reablement support.
The group, which is one of just three businesses representing Cambridgeshire, will now come up against 13 of the region’s elite family-run companies for the coveted accolades.
Aliyyah-Begum Nasser, Director at Askham Village Community, said: “What an honour! Askham has now been in our family for two, almost three generations. My grandfather supported my parents to start the homes back in the 80’s and over the past 30 years my parents have worked tirelessly to develop the business. We are proud to say that Askham truly represents our family values of community, empowerment, respect, dignity and quality. Our staff are an extension of our family and we are grateful to all the staff and members of the public who have been part of this journey with us.”
