Tessa Yeates


Tessa started her career in social care over 25 years ago, volunteering and employed in homeless hostels and residential units in and around Essex, predominantly with young people who have not had the best start in life with little or no support around them.


Wanting to learn more about how to help children and young people, Tessa undertook her social work training whilst working with inner ­city London children and young people. She then settled into a career with an independent fostering agency for over a decade before moving to Diverse Care in 2015.


Fostering is Tessa's passion and she gets a real buzz from supporting foster families offering young people the best start in life. Tessa recognises the importance for children and young people to have a secure base from which to grow, thrive and to reach their full potential in life, whatever that may be. “To infinity and beyond” as Buzz would say!
