Pip Cannon

Pip joined Community Catalysts as Chief Executive in July 2021 after a successful career as a senior business and operational manager in the commercial and public sectors. She is driven by her values and is a passionate advocate for community led support and asset-based models of care.

Pip has worked with system leaders across the UK to:

  • influence health and social care commissioning,
  • encourage the development of community micro-enterprises and community initiatives,
  • promote strength-based practice,
  • ensure the system develops and values people’s skills,
  • build inclusive and resilient communities.

Prior to joining Community Catalysts Pip worked as a Commissioner in Adult Social Care at Somerset County Council where she led the Community Connect Transformation programme, working with the community sector to develop the nationally recognised Microenterprise Programme and Village Agent service. She also worked alongside social work teams, contact centre teams and primary care to implement strength-based conversations and ways of working to improve outcomes for people with care and support needs. She also worked as an Associate for NDTi supporting local authorities and integrated health and care systems to implement community led support programmes.

“ I am thrilled to be part of this coalition, focussing on what matters to people and ensuring that personalisation becomes a reality for all is so important if we are to tackle social and health inequalities”
