Meet the Team....
Naomi Matcham founded CoDesign Consulting in 2016 because she wanted to make a difference and influence change in organisations experiencing challenges with delivering services to vulnerable people. She is committed to person centred approaches and practices and inclusion principles for all people regardless of need, complexity, or age.
Naomi’s strengths lie in her ability to analyse a business and quickly identify what’s working and what’s not working, and what can be done about it; providing business owners with the tools, resources, and guidance they require to foster change and achieve business success over the longer term.
Naomi encourages the businesses she works with to see how they can make a difference; providing them with the tools, support, strategies and sounding board to 'have a go' without the fear of taking the next step due to a lack of knowledge, expertise or understanding.
