Bluebird Care provides caring and competent staff to deliver the highest standards of care at home, not only to older people, but also to people with learning disabilities and to children and their families. Experience in the care sector is not necessary. What is required is a determination and a strong desire to develop a successful business by working to a proven business format. Bluebird Care has created a process of selection of franchisees, not of franchise ‘sales’.
Bluebird Care has been in operation since 2004. The exceptional results of this business led to the development of the Bluebird Care Franchise in June 2006. Our reputation for providing a high quality of care has led to a number of national accounts, working with major care and insurance brands.
With over 200 offices, Bluebird Care is one of the largest and most experienced care at home franchises in the UK and Ireland. However, we still have opportunities available throughout the UK. https://youtu.be/cObJCovYFg4

Our initial three-month fast start programme provides the detail to set up and run the business and understand the care sector in which we operate. Our staff courses provide the understanding of roles and assist greatly in ensuring competent staff.
We have recently incorporated a unique e-learning training package for care staff. Full care management software training is also included in our franchise package, as is ongoing training and updates for both franchisees and staff.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
The Bluebird Care business model is very specific about a franchisee’s role within the business. As this is a private market model, the role is about business development. You will be working on the business, building relationships through a combination of networking and undertaking promotional activity. You will employ staff who will work in your business covering the more specific care management roles, such as the recruitment and training of care staff.
