Bluebird Care names its outstanding franchisees

Last month, Bluebird Care, one of the UK’s fastest growing providers of care at home, presented awards to three of its outstanding franchisees. The awards were handed over during a gala evening in recognition, the company says, of the franchisees’ success in building thriving businesses in difficult economic times.

Overall winners were Chris Kendrick-Jones and Paul Haylings who opened up a Bluebird Care office in Tamworth two years ago. Their business is continuing to experience growth despite the economic downturn. The Best Newcomer award was presented to Jane Perry who has her Bluebird Care office in Edinburgh South. Last but not least, a Spirit of Bluebird Award went to Viv Davies, who owns a Bluebird Care office in Bournemouth.

Managing director Paul Tarsey paid tribute to all their franchisees across England, Scotland and Ireland and said Bluebird Care owed its rapid growth to a variety of factors, including good old-fashioned service and customer care. He commented, “We find that if it is possible, people would rather stay in their own homes and it is far more cost effective for them to do so. For many people, things are very tight and they need to have an affordable service, which delivers good value for money.”

The company, which is based in Petersfield, Hampshire, recently celebrated its fourth birthday and is, it says, maintaining its impressive month-on-month growth of 20 per cent. It specialises in working with people requiring health care and their families, alongside Social Services, GPs and Primary Care Trusts. Bluebird Care also offers live-in support for people who would like, or who need, a greater level of care provision. Bluebird Care currently has 34 offices in three different countries – stretching from Exeter to Canterbury and Limerick to Edinburgh. (kbp)
