"Bluebird Care is an exceptional company to work for. They pride themselves in providing high quality care, exceptional support for the care staff and the office team.

Cheryl joined Bluebird in 2019, bringing with her 30 years valuable experience of working in the domiciliary care sector.
Cheryl started her working life as a care worker and has worked in and managed a variety of different settings.
Bluebird Care South Gloucestershire is owned and run by Sophie and Jack Whitfield. Jack and Sophie bring with them a range of experience in business, finance and customer service, with the focus of their business always being on putting the customer first.
Jack grew up in South Gloucestershire and so has a great understanding of the local community and the people within it. Like many others, Jack and Sophie first came across the care industry when members of their families started to need a helping hand.
It made them realise what a profound difference good quality care can make to someone’s life. They decided to put together a team to provide care to a standard that they would be happy with for their own family and friends.
When not working, Jack can usually be found fishing or playing cricket. Together, Sophie and Jack enjoy going for walks with their dogs, Pablo and Indy.
