Meet the team
Home Care in Bromley is provided through a franchise which is owned by Steve and Lesley Davie and their family. Steve is a Chartered Accountant with many years’ experience of organising the delivery of high quality professional services to demanding customers.
In addition to his accountancy profession background, Steve has several years experience in service-orientated consumer facing businesses at the 'high end' of the retail sector. This background, together with the support and experience of the Bluebird Care franchisor, has made it possible for Steve to create a stable operating platform from which the team’s Care specialists can provide structured and high quality care services to a range of customers within the Borough of Bromley.
In addition to his Bromley Home Care responsibilities, Steve is a Governor at the University of Greenwich, treasurer of his local residents association in Beckenham, husband of more than 30 years to Lesley, father of three grown up children, and a lifelong and (after many years of misery) ultimately rewarded supporter of Manchester City football club.
Steve decided to provide Home Care in Bromley and become a Bluebird Care franchisee because he wanted to bring his knowledge and energy to a worthwhile activity that will bring benefits to vulnerable people in his residential area. The 'Good Old-Fashioned Service' ethos of Bluebird Care matches Steve’s attitude to work, and he is committed to creating a Care service that is treasured by its customers.
Ben’s first 5 years post-University were spent in the Publishing industry, commissioning and developing content for one of the world's leading publishers of academic books, journals and research.
In 2011, he took on a new challenge and joined his father, Steve, as a Director of Bluebird Care Bromley, and subsequently the Sevenoaks and Lewisham & Southwark franchises.
Ben’s role, alongside Steve, is to oversee the back-office administration of the agency, in particular the core non-care related activities of finance, marketing and overall business strategy, as well as supporting their Registered Managers in their human resources and customer service responsibilities.
Ben is proud to be part of an award-winning family business, especially one which provides such a high-quality – and highly-valued – service to the local community.

Care Services Manager - Live-in Care
I had a broad and varied career – including insurance broker and croupier! – prior to joining the care sector in 2004.
I joined Bluebird care in October 2019 and Field Care Supervisor for Team A (East) and was soon promoted to Customer Services Manager for Live-in Care.
Having always been interested people one of the things I enjoy most about Care is connecting with my customers, learning all about their interests, histories and the lives they have lived. I use all this information to try to make my Care Plans as personal to them as I can.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my large brood of children and burgeoning brood grandchildren – especially cooking!
Field Care Supervisor - Team A (West)
I have been involved in Care from a young age: I joined sector straight from school, completing my NVQ Level 3 at college and going on to work with young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, and I continue to play a major and on-going part in caring for my grandparents.
I joined Bluebird Care Bromley in June 2019 as a Care Assistant before quickly joining the office team in September as a Live-in Field Care Supervisor.
I have a small team of customers and carers which allows me to dedicate sufficient time to everyone, paying each a regular weekly visit. This has enabled me to form warm relationships with my customers and great working relationships with the carers; and in ensuring they are well-supported, this turn enables them to carry out their roles to the best of their ability.
Bluebird Care Bromley has given me continuous opportunities and support to grow within the business and the sector, and I hope to further my development over the years to come.
