Kate Samuel – Engagement and Outreach Officer

Kate is responsible for coordinating Firstport’s outreach efforts and is part of the Enquiries Team and the Communications Team.

As one of the first points of contact at Firstport, Kate helps individuals who have queries about accessing our services and funds or who are looking for support to set up their social enterprise. She signposts individuals to relevant upcoming events, support opportunities and resources.

Kate writes our monthly newsletter, shares social entrepreneurs stories through Case Studies and is responsible for updating our Resources Hub. She works across multiple programmes to organise outreach events with support organisations. Recently her focus has been on producing our Advice for Advisors document, which is designed to help those who work with people interested in starting or growing a social enterprise provide support for their clients.

Kate has a degree in Sociology and experience in service delivery in the hospitality industry and third sector organisations. She is passionate about inclusion and ensuring that information about Firsport’s funding and support is available and accessible to as many people as possible across Scotland.
