Speaking recently about his retirement, Graham said,

It has been a great privilege to lead the Charity through some important successes, as well as (more recently) through some very tough times. This year feels like the right time for me to leave, so the organisation can benefit from the fresh perspective of a new CEO as it faces new challenges and explores different opportunities throughout the next phase of its journey.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Peter Schofield CB, Chair of Trustees at Charity for Civil Servants, said,

We are sad to see the departure of Graham but wish him the very best in retirement. Graham has been a huge force for good at the Charity for Civil Servant and will be dearly missed by colleagues, trustees and supporters. To have presided over the Charity during a period where major national and international events have put significant demands on civil servants demonstrates Graham’s resilience as well as the vital importance of the Charity’s work. On behalf of the Trustees, I would like to provide our sincere thanks for his dedication, support and leadership.
