Mandy Johnson has stepped down from her role as chief executive of the Small Charities Coalition after just over one year in post.
In a statement released on Twitter, trustees of the SCC said Johnson had resigned from her role of CEO, but that the organisation would begin recruiting for a new CEO as soon as possible.
Rachel Harding, head of services and Lizzie Walmsley, head of communications and external affairs will continue to manage the office with the support of the trustee board during the recruitment process.

“We are sorry to announce that Mandy Johnson has resigned from her post as CEO of the Small Charities Coalition. We thank Mandy for doing such a terrific job raising the profile of SCC over the past year and we wish her all the very best for the future,” the statement read.
Prior to her role at the SCC, Johnson held a number of senior fundraising and media relations roles at various charities from around the UK. She is also chair of the Institute of Fundraising London Committee and a trustee for the charity War on Want.
Since Johnson’s announcement, people from across the sector have taken to Twitter to praise the work she has done for the organisation in such a small space of time.
Thanks for all you've done to raise profile of small charities across the land. It's not been for long enough though. Sorry to see you go. Good luck for whatever is next.— KLS (@klsettlement) September 28, 2018
Sorry to hear this. You have clearly raised the profile of @sccoalition over the last year with energy and enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to meet you in the summer. Best wishes.— Harrow Apollo Male Choir (@HarrowMVC) September 28, 2018
