Tessa joined Blagrave in 2016 and is our Head of Grants. She oversees all our funding and has a particular responsibility for our first strategic objective: investing in youth organisations. She manages all our regional funding partnerships with organisations in the South East region.

Tessa’s career has been in the voluntary youth sector, including spells at the National Youth Agency, the Young Foundation and the Regional Youth Work Unit in the South West. She is home based, and lives in Frome. She loves working alongside Blagrave partners to learn from their work with young people and support successful grants. Tessa is a trustee of Off the Record, a youth counselling charity in Bath.

Tessa is motivated and moved by the opportunity to bring lasting change to young people’s lives.
