Naomi Dickson became Chief Executive of Jewish Women’s Aid in 2014. She has been involved in JWA for 18 years, initially as a volunteer. In her previous role as Communications & Training Coordinator, she created JWA's training programme to raise awareness in the Jewish community, and empower communal professionals to better identify and support women and children in their organisations who are affected by domestic abuse.
Since becoming CEO, Naomi has supported Jewish Women's Aid through significant growth. The charity now has an enhanced education and campus programme promoting consent and healthy relationships courses, and JWA’s new Dina Sexual Violence Support Service launched in 2019. Naomi has continued to encourage the training of Jewish professionals and lay leaders, and JWA is proud to have trained hundreds of delegates who in turn encourage women to seek support.
Naomi is a trustee of Women's Aid Federation of England, a founder of the Faiths Against Domestic Abuse Coalition, and a Fellow of the Cambridge Senior Faith Leadership Programme.
