What is the opportunity?

Join the UK's largest private home-care franchisor and make a genuine difference to the lives of people in your community.

"We started in order to fulfil a need within our community. We really wanted to make a difference, but without experience of running a care business, we wanted support from a franchise.” Graham and Carol Carruthers, Bluebird Care franchisees, Cornwall.

Bluebird Care’s more mature businesses enjoy up to a £6million turnover whereas a start-up tends to begin at £250,000. Territories typically have an audience of 100,000 – 200,000 residents and within this is an ageing population as well as team members to recruit.

Home is becoming the centre for healthcare. Now is the best time to join the home care industry as it is exponentially growing due to both demographic and political changes. The key agenda from the Government is to heavily invest within social and home care services to reduce hospitalisation!

 Bluebird Care, who are ranked 8 in the Elite Franchise top 100, provide care at home to the vulnerable and elderly throughout the UK. Their care teams make home visits to customers and provide a range of domiciliary care services. They keep the elderly safe at home. And this is exactly where the elderly want to stay!

The recent pandemic has seen shown that the most vulnerable are safer at home where infection control is easier to manage, and Bluebird Care have seen an increase in demand for care at home services as a result. This, coupled with the fact that the ageing population is increasing, means interest in the home care sector has never been greater and so, there’s never been a better time to start a home care franchise!

Request Information

Angela Lakhanpaul and her sister Shaney, joined Bluebird Care in 2018 

"My sister Shaney and I are proud owners of Bluebird Care Market Harborough and Oadby. 

Prior to opening our franchise, I enjoyed working as a Planning solicitor for 13 years and Shaney focused on successfully running  a clothing manufacturing company. 

Caring about 'care' is an area we both felt passionate about from a young age. Caring for our mum who lives with epilepsy, highlighted to us that the care industry lacked professionally managed home care, delivered with the 'family' touch. I volunteered for Healthwatch England which confirmed to me that the health and social care sector remained in need of high quality, person centred care.  We researched home care companies with franchise opportunities and this is where Bluebird Care came in. The Franchise support team were very focused on the provision of high quality care in addition to running asuccessful business, which we feel go hand in hand. 

Running a home care business is both very rewarding and challenging. Its this mix which excites us every day and our fledgling business is safely going from strength to strength".
