Narinder Gill
Owner

Bluebird Care Wakefield is led by Narinder Gill. Narinder started delivering homecare in Wakefield 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 Narinder’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.

Narinder has worked for over 2 decades in the educational field, successfully leading three schools as a head teacher.

In her latest headship of 8 years her commitment, relentless drive to improving life chances of all the children in her care resulted in raised standards, collaborative working and innovative partnerships.

Narinder has always felt passionate about making a difference to the community she serves and her growing interest in services for the older person, the personalisation agenda and the ways in which we need to further develop the voice of the older person has led her to leave working with the younger generation to develop a service for the older person.

I feel the principles that I will apply will be similar and I aim to provide a high quality, professional service that will meet the needs of the older person.

 

Being part of a national company (Bluebird Care), I will ensure that I localise the service I provide to meet the needs of the Wakefield Community.

 

My experiences have taught me that we need to work innovatively, and in partnership with all agencies to ensure we provide a quality service for our customers.
