GCLT - the Board of Trustees
The Gillingham Community and Leisure Trust Ltd. (GCLT) is a community-owned business and registered charity which runs on a ‘not for profit’ basis, operating leisure facilities to benefit Gillingham and the surrounding area.
The Board of Trustees
The Board of trustees of GCLT are responsible for the strategic direction and commercial viability of the business. All trustees are volunteers and unpaid. The role of the Board is to provide critical oversight and support to the General Manager and his leadership team; the Board carries the ultimate responsibility for the strategic direction, staff team, assets, activities and reputation of GCLT.
The GCLT Board support the General Manager and his leadership team in promoting an inclusive culture which views high professional standards as non-negotiable, seeking to provide i) a high quality and enjoyable experience for our customers, ii) appropriate opportunities for staff training and professional development, ii) a safe working environment, iv) the best pay and working conditions that the organisation can afford (with protection from inappropriate or bullying behaviour from colleagues and customers).
As a corporate body, we work hard to secure the future of the organisation in a sustainable manner, using the sum of our individual experience and expertise. In this way, we expect GCLT to continue to make a unique and valuable contribution to the local community for years to come. We recognise that, as a Board of trustees, we are stewards of an important legacy.
