New CEO Garry Smith

A new Chief Executive is to head a leading modern slavery & human trafficking charity, providing safe housing and practical support to victims nationwide.


Having spent over 20 years working at a senior level in the charity sector, Garry Smith has extensive experience in the field and will focus on driving forward the charity’s aims of supporting victims and survivors affected by modern slavery & human trafficking.

Starting his new role, Garry Smith said:

“The Medaille Trust has in its short history grown to be one of the largest providers of specialist safe house beds for victims of modern slavery in the world and has a fine reputation of rolling up its sleeves and working very effectively with the people directly affected by this heinous crime. As such I am immensely proud and grateful to be given the opportunity to lead the organisation in the next phase of its development.”

He continues: “I am passionate in my belief that more must be done to support the victims of this heinous crime and that every person affected by this should receive the highest quality care, enabling them to live an independent life, free from the invisible chains of modern slavery.”

We would very much like to hear from anyone wishing to help us in our mission.
