Care worker up for third award of the year
A care worker will be attending his third glitzy awards ceremony this year after being named as a finalist in the York and Humberside Great British Care Awards (GBCA).
Support Worker Naveed Mughal has already scooped one trophy and been shortlisted for another.
In May, he was named the Newcomer of the Year at our 2023 Making Space Colleague Award ceremony and in June, he attended a London gala awards dinner for the national Housing With Care Awards, where he was a finalist in the Care & Support Worker category.
Now, he’s in the running for the GBCA Home Care Worker award for his work with supported housing tenants at Waterhouse Court in Leeds. He’ll find out if he’s won at a ceremony at The Armouries in Leeds on 2 November.
Manager Sajeed Daji nominated Naveed for the award. He said: “Naveed goes above and beyond every day - it’s what he does. There’s no limit to the lengths he’ll go to to help people get what they need.
“When one tenant had to move out of the flat she’d lived in for 26 years, he personally decorated her new place and moved all her things into the same positions so it would feel like home. He’s taught people how to cook, set up social media accounts, planted flowers – anything they need, he’s there.
“And he does everything with a big smile on his face. He really does brighten all our days.”
Shane Parnell, our Associate Director of Operations, said: “Naveed thoroughly deserves to be in another final,” he/she said.
“It’s so important to celebrate the successes of all the hardworking individuals within the care sector, and when people consistently go above and beyond to help others they should be applauded.
“And Naveed is certainly no stranger to applause! Three awards ceremonies in one year is a remarkable achievement, especially for someone who is new to the care sector. We’re delighted to have such a dedicated person in the Making Space team and will be rooting for him at the final.”
