Disability Rights UK has announced that Kamran Mallick will replaced 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.
Commenting on his appointment, Mallick 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.”
