Bluebird Care was set up in Croydon in May 2010 by local Croydon resident, Dean Slade. Dean who previously worked at Croydon’s University Hospital witnessed first-hand the lack of high quality flexible care in the home services and wanted to give something back to his local community. In little more than 5 years the Croydon office of Bluebird Care is now providing over 50,000 care visits a year.  They employ over 50 local care staff which has provided a great number of new jobs to the Croydon area.
