Bluebird Care, one of the UK’s leading home care providers, has named its Altrincham-based office the winners of its Franchise of the Year award.

Ian Helsby (second from left, above), owner of Bluebird Care Trafford, beat almost 200 other offices across the country to land the recognition for offering the highest quality home care to customers.

Launched in 2011, Bluebird Care Trafford now employs 60 staff delivering care to over 100 regular customers at home every week. In the next 12 months, staff will deliver more than 60,000 individual visits across Trafford.

Helsby said: “Our dedicated staff are committed to making a positive difference to our customers’ lives. Each is highly trained to provide the best possible service.

“We are passionate about all that we do and it is an absolute privilege to receive such an accolade as being crowned No 1 in the country from almost 200 Bluebird Care offices.”

Bluebird Care chief operating officer, Duncan Berry, added: “Bluebird Care has been delivering high quality care to thousands of customers at home for over a decade, and I’m thrilled to recognise the hard work Ian has been doing in Trafford. Ian and his team deliver a very high quality service that goes above and beyond on every single visit.”
