Our Story

Empowering Communities with Compassionate Care

Mega Care was founded in 2011 by Margeret Lawal, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner with over 30 years of experience in the health and care sectors.

Meg’s Vision: Transforming Care,
Enriching Lives

Mega Care was founded in 2011 by Margeret Lawal, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner with over 30 years of experience in the health and care sectors. Driven by her passion for making a difference, Meg envisioned a nurse-led, clinically-based service that would provide high-quality care and support to local communities.

Meg’s extensive experience working in care homes had shown her that people could be better supported in the comfort of their own homes. She was determined to create a company that would deliver the exceptional care she believed everyone deserved.

Overcoming Challenges, Achieving Success

Starting Mega Care was not an easy journey. Meg faced numerous obstacles, from navigating the complex regulatory landscape to building trust in a new company. However, her unwavering commitment and vision fuelled her determination to succeed.

Meg continued to work outside of Mega Care to finance the business, all while completing her Master’s in Advanced Practice and raising three children as a single mother. The process of arranging care was often lengthy and bureaucratic, which Meg knew was impacting the quality of care people were receiving.

Despite these challenges, Meg persevered, driven by her desire to have a meaningful impact on local communities and improve the care industry. It took 11 months to secure the company’s first client, but Meg’s perseverance paid off. Mega Care soon expanded, securing a spot contract with Northamptonshire County Council, expansion into Bedford and eventually breaking even after four years.

A Family Affair: Expanding with Passion and Expertise

Meg’s sons, Winner and King, joined Mega Care in the early years, bringing their own unique skills and expertise to the growing business.

Winner Lawal, Meg’s younger son, was involved with Mega Care since 2012 while studying Biometric Sciences. He joined Mega Care full-time after graduating, driven by his vision to bring stability and progress to the company. Before joining Mega Care, Winner had considered a career in medicine, but after working at Mega Care, he saw the immense potential for impact in the home care industry and Mega Care specifically.

King Lawal, the eldest son, joined in 2015, bringing his background in accountancy to support the business’s growth and sustainability. King’s vision was to install a culture of commitment, dedication, and loyalty within the Mega Care team, ensuring the company’s continued success.

Under King’s leadership, Mega Care thrived in Bedfordshire and expanded into Hertfordshire in 2018. He also pioneered the “Rapid Response” (now “Home Recovery”) service in Bedfordshire, working closely with the East London NHS Foundation Trust to help hundreds of people safely return home quicker after hospital admissions.

Today, Mega Care operates across Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire, and Oxfordshire, delivering exceptional, compassionate care to communities throughout the region.

Continuing the Legacy of Care

Meg’s passion, resilience, and commitment to excellence have been the driving force behind Mega Care’s success. Her vision of transforming care and enriching lives continues to guide the company’s mission, as Meg and her family work tirelessly to make a positive impact on the communities they serve.
