The Access Care Team

We are a small, happy team. Combined, we have over 90 years (!) of experience in the homecare and recruitment industries. Couple this with degrees, certificates, qualifications, big hearts, common sense and a drive to ensure our service surpasses expectation - we are the Access Care office team.


Managing Director

Tiggy (Judie's daughter) is proud to lead the Access Care Team, but when she's not in the office Tiggy can be found on stage living her am-dram dream, or travelling to sunnier climes with the family! She's pictured here with 'Chloe' the gorgeous Cavalier King Charles who is never far from her side and very good as an office therapy dog when the team need a cuddle!

Carer Bookings & Client Relations Manager

Jess matches the right carers for our clients, getting to know them personally and making sure they have the right experience. She loves the daily catch ups with different people and the great reaction Jess gets when she confirms a booking for our lovely ladies and gents!
When not at work, after all that talking, Jess loves nothing more than a quiet night over dinner with her husband, or a walk in the woods near her home.

"I started working for Access Care in December 2018, firstly as an administrator, gradually building to the management role I have now within the Bookings department. The role is varied and I learn something new every day which keeps things interesting! I get a huge sense of satisfaction in my role, knowing that I am part of a company that helps vulnerable adults stay in their own homes, working with a fantastic team who share the responsibility and enthusiasm of matching carers to clients. There’s nothing like the joy of hearing the testimonials for our carers provided by the clients, it makes all our hard work so worthwhile."

- Jess, Carer Bookings & Client Relations Manager

"I truly believe in the service Access Care provides: helping both clients and carers to find each other and give one meaningful work for their chosen vocation of caring and the other the best quality of life they can have living in their own homes – what could be better?  I personally know the benefit and peace of mind a carer can bring as my lovely mum has one of our carers and I absolutely know how well this works - they adore each other!  I love speaking to and meeting clients and carers alike, which helps me in my role as recruitment consultant and now new client consultant.  We work hard for everyone and can do so in a beautiful country environment – I had a beautiful butterfly resting on my window this morning and can watch the swallows diving around the area! "

- Tahira, New Client Team
