Colin Smith MBE

colinsmithColin has an impressive 43 years work experience with the Department for Work and Pensions and retired in 2014. He was awarded an MBE for services to DWP in the 2007 Queens Birthday honours.

During the last 10 years he has worked extensively around the Midlands with community organisations which support disabled people and Carers. He has more recently, worked exclusively within Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Colin’s work has enabled him to see and hear at first hand the role of Carers and carers organisations and how those roles are valued and appreciated by families and cared for people.

Colin brings both empathy and understanding as a CASS trustee alongside professionalism and skills he has learned during his Civil Service career.
