Naomi Dickson became Chief Executive of Jewish Women’s Aid in 2014.

Since becoming CEO, Naomi has supported the organisation through significant growth. In addition to ensuring a high professional standard in augmented frontline services for Jewish women experiencing domestic abuse, she oversaw the expansion of the charity’s offer through the launch of the specialist Dina Sexual Violence Support Service in 2019. The charity also has a newly enhanced education programme in schools and on campus, promoting consent and healthy relationships.

Naomi has been involved in Jewish Women’s Aid for 18 years, initially as a volunteer, and she is proud of creating JWA's training programme to raise awareness in the Jewish community and empower rabbis and communal professionals to better identify and support women and children who are affected by domestic abuse. She is also proud that Jewish Women’s Aid is held in high regard across the Jewish community and domestic abuse sector.

Naomi was a trustee of Women's Aid Federation of England for three years until 2021, a founder of the Faiths Against Domestic Abuse Coalition, and a Fellow of the Cambridge Senior Faith Leadership Programme.

Naomi was privileged to be named on the BBC’s global list of 100 inspiring and influential women in 2020.
