Ambient Support: Naomi Atkinson

Naomi Atkinson

Not-for-profit health and social care provider Ambient Support has appointed Naomi Atkinson as director of operations, replacing Tom Harrison who was in the position for five years.

Atkinson has more than 30 years’ experience working in social care and the not-for-profit sector. She will oversee 900 employees delivering support in more than 110 locations for older people, people with mental health needs, and adults with a learning disability.

Atkinson said: “I was drawn to Ambient’s strong person-centred values and its clear commitment to elevating the voice and influence of the people it supports, for which the organisation has won many awards.

“The role is an exceptional opportunity and one which will allow me to utilise my skills, enthusiasm, and breadth of experience working across health, social care, housing, quality improvement and governance. I aim to deliver positive change and drive forward the organisation whilst advocating social care as a long-term career option and attracting new people to the charity.”

Mark Milton chief executive of Ambient, commented: “Naomi brings an impressive track record working in social care and the not-for-profit sector and is clearly committed to Ambient’s values and ethos. I anticipate new insight and fresh thinking as we accelerate our position as provider of choice, and I am delighted to welcome her to the team.”
