Naomi Sampson

Project Manager (Community Business)

Naomi is driven by the power of community action that delivers positive local change. Naomi has over 20 years’ experience strengthening the capacity of charitable organisations, including leading and managing development services for local community and voluntary infrastructure services in Greater Manchester. She is also a fan of collaboration, bringing people together to co-design services that deliver positive outcomes, including supporting the Third Sector Consortium in Sheffield.

Prior to joining Community Catalysts, Naomi worked for Power to Change managing the £3m Community Shares Booster Programme that helps community businesses raise finance through community share offers. Naomi has trained to become a community shares registered practitioner.

In the past, Naomi volunteered as a community companion to reduce loneliness of older people in her neighbourhood. She is a trustee of Age UK Sheffield that strives to help vulnerable older people in the city to lead fulfilled lives. As a mum of 2 kids, Naomi is also big on work life balance and the importance of tea-drinking!

Naomi joined Community Catalysts in October 2021 to develop our work in harnessing the potential of community businesses to meet local health and care needs.
