Leading home care provider Bluebird Care has held off competition from other industry sectors to scoop the top prize at the prestigious British Franchise Association (bfa) Awards.

Bluebird Care was named bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year 2017, with the judges praising the company’s outstanding Franchise Support Centre, engaging company culture, and its commitment to innovation and franchising ethics.

The bfa HSBC Awards celebrate the very best of UK franchises. Established as a franchisor since 2006, Bluebird Care provides some 28,000 home care visits daily to customers across the UK and Republic of Ireland through its 200 franchisees’ offices.

CEO of the bfa, Pip Wilkins, said: “Bluebird Care’s achievement is truly inspiring and as judges, we couldn’t help but notice the team’s hard work and overall excellence in growing their franchise.  We are excited to see how the business shapes itself in the near future.”


Following the announcement, Duncan Berry, Bluebird Care COO, said: “Initiatives like the bfa HSBC Franchise Awards encourage the industry to maintain a high standard, and we are delighted to be part of this success.  We work hard to differentiate ourselves in the home care market and this award is a reflection of the progress we are making.”

Five businesses were shortlisted for the award, with all finalists presenting to the Judging Panel in March.

Andrew Brattesani, UK Head of Franchising at HSBC, added: “All finalists were exceptional and therefore selecting the winners was a difficult decision. I was genuinely impressed by Bluebird Care and wish the team further success as they grow their business.”

In more good news for Bluebird Care, Victoria Webber, owner of the Lincoln franchise, was a finalist in the bfa HSBC Young Franchisee of the Year Award, taking place on the same night.

In May, it was announced that Bluebird Care had won the Franchise Award for Innovation at workingmums.co.uk Top Franchise Awards 2017 and that Fiona Williams, director of operations at Bluebird Care, had been awarded the Inspirational Woman in Franchising Award for Encouraging Women Into Franchising (EWIF) 2017.
