Our Management Team

Our Management Team consists of a mix of competent, committed and experienced people. Allow us to introduce them to you on this page.

Helen Shepherd

Having worked within the care industry since 1994, Helen found that most people want to remain in the comfort of their own home but that some form of assistance is needed to achieve that aim.

Over the years, Helen had a number of personal experiences where she couldn’t find the level of good quality care that she wanted for her relatives and friends. It then became her goal to provide just that, and to ensure that high quality, personalised care is given by carers who come to be an extension of the client’s family.

With this in mind, Helen set up Help and Company in 2008.

Ian Shepherd   Dip PCM (Dist.)

Ian is responsible for all of the financial activities of Help and Company, including payroll, accounts, forward planning, etc.


He also acts as a Management Consultant to various medical practices and works with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as both a Practice Manager Specialist Advisor and a Bank Inspector on their regulatory inspections of Primary Medical Services. This includes medical practices, dental practicers, out of hours providers, walk in centres, etc.

Jan Smithers

Jan is our Care Supervisor and has been working with Helen since 2009.  Her role is to support, mentor and supervise our carers and to assist Helen with the running of our home help service. She is also able to provide home care assessments for new clients, and review care plans for existing ones.  Jan also manages the Day Club which is held every Tuesday and Thursday, between 10:00am and 3:30pm, at the Billingshurst Centre, Roman Way, Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 9QW.


All of the staff receive the benefit of the wealth of experience that Jan has in providing high quality care. She is very passionate about her role, has great emapthy with all of our clients, and endeavours to provide the best service to each and every one of them. She is a tremendous asset to Help and Company.
