Disability Rights UK Announces New Chief Executive

Disability Rights UK has announced that Kamran Mallick will replace Liz Sayce as chief executive of the charity, following her decision to retire.

Currently chief executive of Action on Disability , the Hammersmith-based disability organisation, Mallick has previously worked for the spinal injury charity Aspire as well as running his own business. He’s on the boards of Inclusion London and the Lyric Hammersmith, and chair of Candoco dance company. He’s also a member of Transport for London’s Independent Disability Advisory Group.

Commenting on his appointment, Kamran said:

“I am delighted to be joining the country’s foremost user led disabled people’s organisation at such an exciting stage in its development. Disability Rights UK is working hard to expand its reach to all disabled people, and people with long term health conditions, and ensure it is their lived experiences which influence policy change. I am looking forward to working with the trustees and staff team and building on the organisation’s achievements to date.”

Anne Beales, chair of DRUK, added “There were some exceptionally strong candidates for the post of chief executive and we’re delighted to be welcoming Kamran, who comes with wide ranging experience and a strong track record in the disability rights movement.”

Kamran takes up the new job in July 2017 and we wish him every success.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
