Local community charity names next CEO

Sussex based charity Crawley Community Action (CCA) has promoted its deputy chief executive Toby Shaw to the top role.

He takes over as chief executive this month at the charity from Daran Bennett, who has been acting as interim CEO since May 2021.

CCA supports charities and community groups in the Sussex town and is currently involved in an expansion of social prescribing in the area, which sees charities support health and wellbeing initiatives.

“Since he joined us, Toby has always demonstrated his huge commitment to CCA and the local community,” said CCA chair Sue Bloom.

“Toby has the skills and vision which we need to flourish as a charity and to continue our vital work supporting the local community. We are so pleased that he has accepted this role and we look forward to working with him as our new CEO.”

Shaw added: “I am thrilled to be taking on this role at CCA. The work we achieve in the local community is so rewarding, and I’m grateful to all of our funders and partners who have supported CCA for over 60 years.”
