Join the UK’s largest Home Care franchise and benefit from our personally and financially rewarding business model.
UK – Nationwide
Bluebird Care started as a small family business in 2004 and through franchising since 2006, are proud to be the largest private homecare provider in the UK, having grown from one business to over 220, delivering over 900,000 hours of care every month.
In the UK, there are nearly 12 million people aged 65 and over. By 2030, it is predicted that one in five people will be in this age group. So, what does this mean for the care sector? It means that demand for high quality homecare will only keep increasing.
Understandably, now more than ever, many older people would prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes for as long as they can. Home does not just mean a place to lay their heads; it represents independence and stability. Perhaps most importantly, a home is filled with a lifetime of memories, raising a child, family Christmases or spending many happy years together with a partner.
Whilst there is a demographic trend towards an ageing population and people living longer, often homecare providers solely focus on the elder care market, therefore limiting the potential to provide additional critical services. Bluebird Care’s model is broad and scalable – also providing high quality home care services to multiple market segments – making the opportunity an exciting investment choice. These include providing support to people with learning disabilities, delivering respite services for children and their family carers, supporting NHS Discharge Teams with the transition of their patients from hospital to home and assisting with the delivery of complex care.
The story of Bluebird Cares success is a testimony to the high-quality home care and support services that franchisees provide to each of their customers every day. Bluebird care attribute this to their robust business model and the comprehensive support provided to each new franchise business.

“As a branch manager, I was very successful, However, I was not getting the job satisfaction I longed for. I wanted to be my own boss and build my own business, instead of helping other people build theirs. I carried out many weeks of research into the care industry and from my research on Bluebird Care, they ticked all the boxes for me. It was a Brand I wanted to be part of, and I was confident to change direction and become a franchise owner. I love this business, it gives me the freedom to work the hours that suit my family life, although I am reluctant to stay away, as the excitement of continuing to grow successfully is a big draw”.
