Meet the team
Director of Bluebird Care Glasgow South
Jane Perry has owned the Bluebird Care Glasgow South franchise along with her husband John since 2012 and is still as passionate about delivering the best bespoke, quality care service now, as she was back then!
Jane knows her business inside and out and has done everything from caring, to co-ordinating. Through her main role as Company Director for both franchises, Jane oversees both the Edinburgh & Glasgow offices, ensuring that the interests and wellbeing of all of the customers and staff are met and that both businesses run smoothly and effectively.
Since coming into the care sector back in 2007, I have seen many, many changes, both positive and others not so. For us and the sector as whole, the biggest challenge is recruitment of quality staff, who share the same desire and hunger to deliver the type of care they would want for their families and loved ones. We all want a quality care service, with the best people possible for a fair price and that is what I feel we deliver day after day. We have a wonderfully diverse, dedicated team of well trained people, some of whom have been with us from the start of our care journey, all sharing the same drive and passion to deliver a care service that they are proud of. I take a huge amount of pride and satisfaction at what we have achieved so far in terms of the awards and accolades, but far from resting on our laurels, our aim is to continue to improve where we can, invest in innovation, attract the very best people possible and be the first name people think of when it comes to needing a quality care at home service for either themselves, or a loved one.

Head of People
I have 10 years’ experience in the care at home sector, all of which have been with Bluebird Care Edinburgh. I have been lucky to have been able to grow and develop my skills, during this time, from a care coordinator to my current role. As Head of People it allows me to work with a great team across Edinburgh, Glasgow and now Ayrshire, to ensure that we recruit, induct and support amazing care staff. I am passionate about training, career development, supporting our employees and creating a positive working environment for all. As part of the management team, I am in a privileged position to be able to shape the way of the future for our customers and employees.
Outside of work, I am mum to Edith who keeps me on my toes but teaches me a lot about myself and the world. I have a wonderful husband Neil, who makes me laugh daily and reminds me that I can achieve whatever I set I mind to. I love to keep fit and still use my personal training days to help others, achieve their goals.
Deputy Care Manager
Hi, my name is Lynsey Donaghy, and I joined Bluebird Care Glasgow South as a supervisor back in February 2015. I have many years of experience in the care sector under my belt but was looking to broaden my learning and take on a new challenge. After only a few short months, I was offered the position of Deputy Care Manager.
After 5 years, I took a little break from Bluebird Care but was soon back in the position of Customer Care Manager. I have recently been appointed the position of Deputy Care Manager, so that I can again focus on maintaining high-quality home care across Glasgow South.
Bluebird Care is more to me than a job, it’s my life and my second family. Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am a mum of one and also a devoted wife. Hobby-wise, I enjoy skiing, baking up sweet treats and being outdoors.
My name is Diane Rawlinson and I emigrated to Scotland in 2018 from South Africa. I love to travel and learn about different cultures; I have travelled extensively throughout sub-Saharan Africa and North America and now hopefully Europe. Joining Bluebird Care in 2018 as a Carer was definitely one of my better decisions in life. I enjoy learning and Bluebird Care offers so many learning and growing opportunities within the organization. In the space of three short years, I have gone from being a Carer to a Mentor to a Support Care Supervisor to now being a Supervisor. Working in Care can be very difficult at times, but it is also so rewarding. How many jobs are there that you get to go home at night and know that you have made a difference in someone’s life that day?
Hi, my name is Jade Bartholomew and I am the Care Supervisor for Bluebird Care Glasgow South.
I started to work in the care sector because I wanted to feel like I was making a difference each day I went to work and with Bluebird Care that is exactly what I get. I have been with Bluebird Care for just over a year now and my experience has been so much better than anticipated. I feel I have an extended family and not just colleagues.
The opportunities open to me, to learn and develop here is nothing like I have ever been used to in previous roles, and I feel excited, for not only me personally but Bluebird Care Glasgow South as a business.
