Meet the team

Atul Dhir


Our Director, Atul Dhir and Namita are joint co-owners and Directors of the franchise for Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds & Stowmarket and Huntingdon.

I am a very hands on Director, and I like to spend time in the office to ensure that everything runs smoothly. My current focus is on converting our systems to new technology which will mean a more dynamic way of working for our care staff and our office based staff too. Exciting times!

Atul has a degree in Business Administration and has many years’ experience of delivery of high quality professional services to demanding customers through his previous business ventures.

He successfully ran three art galleries in the Kent area and 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 Atul to create a platform from which the team’s Care specialists can provide structured and high quality care services to a range of customers within Suffolk.

Atul is a keen golfer in his leisure time and enjoys travelling.
