Meet the team

Tessa Gutteridge, Director 

Tessa has worked with, been fascinated by and committed to people living with young onset dementia since 1996.  Having researched the impact of this condition on individuals and families, she has played a key role in developing YoungDementia UK’s range of award-winning services in Oxfordshire. 

Her values and approach are shaped by her personal experience with dementia as well as her background in mental health advocacy and advice work.  She is keen to share what works well for and with people with young onset dementia, and to this end, initiated and leads the national collaborative Young Dementia Network.
