CEO Garry Smith: ‘Charity sector leaders must look after those on the frontline’

CEO Garry Smith has spoken to Civil Society about Trust, it's history, and the importance of Charities caring for their frontline workers. 

Speaking to Sam Wait, Garry had this to say about changes made to the Trust since he took on the role of CEO in 2018:

"Generally, the frontline workers aren’t always the best paid. Whether that be the public sector or the charity sector, the thing that’s most dear to you and the reason you exist as an organisation only works if people do their job well, and do it to the standard that you would want it to be done." 

"Therefore, I believe those people need looking after and it’s for leaders in the charity sector to ensure that that they look after the people at the frontline."

"These are the people that are doing the hard work. I rely on them for the reputation of our charity, so I’m going to do my best to pay them as much as we can afford to pay them. I hope that then is reciprocated by them saying: ‘They’ve done their best for us and we’ll do our best for them."
