CEO - MBA, FCCA, BA Hons Owner
Bluebird Care Bradford South is led by Shabir Hussain. Shabir started delivering homecare in Bradford to help support customers in the area to receive homecare and support while remaining in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes. Delivering the highest quality of homecare and support is Shabir’s absolute goal and the team would be delighted to hear from anyone who is seeking homecare for themselves or for a loved one, or would simply like to talk to someone about the services we provide.
Making a contribution in the local community has been my personal aim both in paid employment and as a volunteer.
Before Bluebird Care I worked for a housing charity for over 16 years. Giving a house to a family living in unsuitable housing/ bed and breakfast is hugely satisfying. The impact it has on the whole family is immeasurable and impossible to describe - especially the difference it makes to children's lives.
Just as with the housing charity; the care Bluebird Care provides has a huge impact on our customers' lives. Bluebird Care provides care that I would want for my own mother, father or family members.
Bluebird Care employs colleagues who are passionate about providing care. We empower them through good training and by giving them freedom to make decisions.
Bluebird Care customers maintain their independence because they have complete control of the care they receive.
Outside of Bluebird Care I do voluntary work for:
Rotary – as a member I help to fundraise for local good causes as well as helping at local events.
Venture Housing Association – housing associations make a huge difference in their local communities. I am a Board Member and Chair of Corporate Services Committee.
Halifax Opportunities Trust – this is local redevelopment agency. It provides support to local businesses, delivers employment initiatives as well as training designed to increase people’s skills and confidence to find employment. I am a Trustee of the charity.
Care Manager - Train The Trainer (Infection Prevention, Safeguarding (Adults & Children), Medication, Moving & Handling), BTEC Level 5 Diploma, NVQ Level 4 & 3, all in Management & Leadership.
Diane has over 30 years experience of providing care in Calderdale. When she isn’t working she loves playing Bingo, walking in the country, socialising, and spending quality time with her family.

Hi, my name is Neil, I am a family man and father of two boys and two girls, and I hate to admit it,. at an age where I have several lovely grandchildren. I am also a stepdad to two boys and their grandchildren too. I love sports and support (on telly), both Leeds Rhinos (being an ex-rugby league amateur player) and Leeds united being a local Leeds lad. I also like to keep myself fit ish
I have been a manager for over 25 years both in Manufacturing and Quality. The last 7 years spent predominantly in a Quality and Assurance role, ensuring Quality, Health & Safety, and Environmental compliance.
Having introduced Complete Quality assurance systems in manufacturing environments being fully compliant to ISO9001:2015,and Managed Quality both product and systems for many years, Quality is key in all aspects of life, I wanted to bring my external experience to the Care Industry.
Quality is not just about product quality, it is about people, and how the company can get the best from its people, introducing methods to achieve compliance but also training and involving all staff to achieve the best in whatever environment. As a manager you often find yourself – taking constructive input from your own staff, but also your customers and anyone who has involvement/influence. It is key that you use these Inputs to try to achieve best practice disciplines in all areas. Fundamentally it’s about teams and developing teams to achieve the best outcome.
Quality and people care is fundamental in any environment and while in my previous roles I was not involved directly in my working environment as a people carer, in my personal life I have had significant involvement directly in people care as I was the sole carer for my father for over 10 years prior to his passing – Hence why I am so passionate about this role.,
