Hallmark’s Avnish Goyal receives CBE

Avnish Goyal, chair of Care England and founder of Hallmark Care Homes, has received a CBE in the Queen’s birthday honour’s list for his services to social care and philanthropy.

Having become chair of Care England in 2015, Avnish has campaigned for better government funding of social care. He helped found both The Care Workers Charity, which provides financial and professional support to care workers, and Championing Social Care, which works to promote awareness of the social care workforce through various annual events.

Avnish also established the Care Sector Fundraising Ball, which to date has raised £348,000 for care charities, and he and his wife Anita have been appointed Alzheimer’s Society ambassadors, supporting the charity’s work to support people affected by dementia.

Avnish Goyal said: “I’m deeply humbled to be recognised by her Majesty, the Queen in her special platinum jubilee year for my work in social care and philanthropy as we celebrate our own silver jubilee for Hallmark Care Homes. I joined the sector because I wanted to make a difference and I knew I had something to offer. Over that time, I’ve worked hard, with my brothers, to establish a care company we can be proud of by delivering high quality care to residents in beautifully designed award-winning care homes and driving quality and care standards in the sector. I have enjoyed working with Care England and numerous charities which support and promote our caring and committed workforce. I’m delighted that my work has been recognised at the highest level. I know that this honour will act as a further catalyst to take my work in social care and philanthropy to the next level.”

Care England chief executive Martin Green said: “In his role as chair of Care England, and through the high-quality services provided by Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal has made an outstanding contribution to the care sector and he has always been a powerful advocate for high-quality care and innovations that improve people’s lives. Avnish’s contribution to society goes far beyond his work in care, and through his philanthropy, in the UK and internationally, through his work with the Hemraj Goyal Foundation he has transformed the lives of thousands of people. Everyone at Care England, and throughout the care sector, will congratulate Avnish on his well-deserved appointment as a CBE.”

Karolina Gerlich, CEO of The Care Workers Charity added: “I’d like to say a huge congratulations to Avnish for his well-deserved award. We thoroughly appreciate all the support Avnish and Hallmark Care Homes’ Foundation have provided in raising awareness and grant giving to the Care Workers Charity. It’s important to Avnish that he leads by example and gives back to the sector that he works in and we really respect this about him.”
