More people than ever are choosing to receive care at home, but what makes them choose Bluebird Care?

Our staff members are the face of our company and it’s our care teams that enable our customers to stay in the comfort of their own homes. Our teams provide vital care and support as well as building and growing relationships, bringing smiles to the faces of our customers, laughing, sharing experiences, listening to stories and sometimes wiping away tears.

Working with some of the most vulnerable members of society can give enormous satisfaction to the right person. It offers the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives; a vocation rather than just a job.

Fair Futures For Our Care Assistants

Recruitment in the care industry often comes with numerous challenges, making it a constant uphill battle for employers. One of the primary struggles is the shortage of qualified candidates.

The demand for care services is consistently high, driven by an aging population and increased need for healthcare support. However, there is a limited pool of individuals with the necessary skills, experience, and qualifications to fill these roles.

This campaign is to spread positivity in the realm of care and to recognise the hard work and dedication of our Care Assistants.
