Our Story

It starts with your story…

…and it all started with ours…

Teacup was inspired by the life of Barbara Sturgess (pictured above), the grandmother of co-founders Kate Bartlett and Jack Oliver, and client of Heather Manktelow; the third in our trio of business founders.

At the end of her life Barbara lived with dementia and a very large collection of miniature teacups – hence our name! We are inspired to continue to provide the person-centred and specialist care our wonderful grandmother was worthy of.
