Bluebird Care is the fastest growing care franchise in the UK with experience in franchising and care provision you will not find elsewhere.
Bluebird Care is a management franchise, recruiting and managing caring and competent staff to deliver the highest standards of care. Franchise owners come from a variety of backgrounds – experience in the care sector is not necessary. What it requires 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 franchise owners not of franchise ‘sales’ and strives hard for an ethos of business partnership with our franchise owners.
We provide care not only to older people but also to people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and to children and their families. Care can range from visits once, twice or more daily right through to live-in care.
We operate in a market currently estimated at over £20billion per annum. As more and more people are encouraged by Government to be cared for in their own homes instead of moving into residential care, the market size can only increase.

The three directors of the Company, Paul & Lisa Tarsey and Simon Dalziel have many years experience in both the care sector and franchising. They have also put together a hugely effective head office franchise support team.
This in turn has lead to the enormous success the brand has achieved. Bluebird Care is now seen as a major provider of high quality care throughout the UK and beyond, and continues to grow this reputation.
This proven track record enables them to offer an unbeatable business and support package for their franchise owners.
With the experience the Company has, Bluebird Care offer an unrivalled support programme to get your business off to a fast start, together with ongoing help every step of the way.
