My name is Lucy McCormack, I am the daughter of owners Tracey and Kevin McCormack.
Working within my family business is something I am incredibly proud of and passionate about.
Throughout my childhood I saw my mother and father work incredibly hard to build a community home care service that could offer people the very best quality home and live in care support, whilst remaining in the comfort and security of their own home.
My role here at Bluebird Care involves managing the day to day business of our 6 franchise locations. Alike any care organisation we have the amition to grow our quality service so that we can assist more people in our local community to live safely, happily and comfortably within their own home.
My role involves communicating with all of our staff members both those in the field and those whom are office based. My team makes communication very easy, as we have a well established open, honest and friendly culture. And we are all brought together by the common aim and objective 'To offer the highest quality and dignified home care service in our local community'.
Natasha Joined the Bluebird Care team at the beginning of 2018.
Having worked in the care industry since the young age of 16, Natasha's experience is broad and in great depth.
Growing up Natasha spent a lot of time with her Nan who was a nurse.
Natasha was interested and intrigued by the work her nan participated in on a daily basis and knew that when she entered the world of work she would want to do something similar. With that in mind at 16, Natasha applied to a local nursing home for a 'summer job'. After spending her summer helping the elderly with their daily routines she knew her future career would be in the care industry.
Since then, Natasha has progressed from care assistant, to supervisor, to manager, and then onto help set up a care service to support young disabled children, where she was promoted to county manager of the Essex region.
As well as gaining a wealth of experience in this time Natasha also achieved her A1 Assessors award, QCF Level 5 in Child and Adult management, as well as completing her care certificate.
In her many years of experience Natasha has developed acute listening skills and is considered an honest and approachable individual. These qualities allow Natasha to deal with any challenging situation professionally and appropriately.
Despite working in the care industry for the majority of her life, Natasha says the most enjoyable aspect of coming to work is knowing that no matter what the situation or how unpredictable the day may be she knows her team will pull through and work to achieve the best possible outcome.

I have been at Bluebird Care since 2014 and I am fortunate to love my job and be a part of an ‘outstanding’ team. My role is more than a “traditional finance” role, which makes it very rewarding role – I get the opportunity to meet customers and employees and it’s amazing feeling knowing that as a team we have made a positive difference to someone’s life and been there to support them – may that be our customers, their families or a Bluebird Care employee
