About Small Charities Coalition

Small Charities Coalition has over 7,650 members, and exists to champion all small charities, whether registered or not. It defines a small charity as one which has an annual income of less than £1 million. It collaborates with individuals and organisations in all sectors to provide small charities with support and development in the form of skill sharing, training and resources.

Mandy Johnson said of her appointment: “Small charities need an umbrella organisation which can enable them to fight their corner, offer a reassuring hand, and provide opportunities to face obstacles with a united voice.”

She described it as a delight and privilege to work for the organisation, and thanked John Barrett and his colleagues for building strong foundations.

Julia Kaufmann, Chair of SCC, added: “This is an exciting time for the charity as we enter into a new strategic review period, positioning us to respond to existing and future challenges for small charities. We are pleased Mandy will be joining us to lead this work, and are looking forward to the future under her leadership.”
