They say ‘home is where the heart is’ and we at Bluebird Care keep our customers safe and cared for in theirs.​

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.

Being a part of our dedicated Bluebird Care team is immensely rewarding, but it also demands commitment and professionalism. 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.

We are looking for people who are passionate about great care. If you share our commitment to provide the best home care services, get in touch with us today.

Alan Pankhurst
Franchise Owner

Bluebird Care Nottingham is owned and managed by Director Alan Pankhurst. Alan was made redundant in December 2010 from Lincolnshire County Council where he spent 10 years as their Research Manager investigating demographic changes and their impact on services.

Overall, Alan has had 30 years’ managerial experience mainly in the public sector responsible for recruiting and training staff, marketing services and managing significant department and team budgets. He was also employed as a regional management consultant responsible for efficiency studies into local offices performance, budget management and staffing levels.  

Whilst Alan has no direct work experience of the care sector, he has, over the last 7 years, worked very closely with the Director of Public Health and the Primary Care Trust on their joint needs assessment so understands the problems and challenges facing the sector. He is passionate about providing good quality care and making a difference to people’s lives.  

Alan is a keen golfer although his handicap might suggest otherwise and is secretary of a local golf society.

Sarah Fish
Franchise Owner

Sarah is one of the owners of Bluebird Care Nottingham, joining the family business in 2013.  Sarah’s working background was in business and finance, which has supported her in her role as Office Manager.  Sarah is very passionate about supporting her customers with the high standards of care she would expect to receive herself or for her family as and when the time comes, whilst ensuring her staff are supported throughout their time with Bluebird Care.

“As a family business, our aim is to be able to support our customers to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible.  For some of our customers, the carers they see may be the only company they receive, so we want to ensure we are supporting them in the ways they need, whether it be supporting with a bath to a cup of tea and a natter, it makes all the difference!”
