Formerly and most recently as an Equalities Officer at Hampshire County Council, Amjid was instrumental in setting up and help develop some key front-facing initiatives within the local authority such as the Hampshire Interfaith Network, the annual Interfaith lecture and calendar. His work involved working with ‘cultural services’ within the department driving the equalities agenda forward. Arts, Museum, Libraries, Sports, Countryside & Outdoor Activities were some of the key services he directly worked with. He started off his career as a youth worker and progressed to working in various advice agencies specialising in employment law and welfare benefit law.
Amjid has spent his latter 10 years working as an equalities specialist including being a project manager for a pioneering Community Action Hampshire mapping project across the County which helped to highlight the issues and barriers to accessing local authority service provision. This was a precursor to the County hosting dedicated community development worker resources to enable better and improved access.
Amjid is now an established photographer and is frequently booked for freelance work including weddings, community events and cultural celebrations across the South Coast.
Iain has over 14 years’ experience of working in the Disability Sector in Senior Management and Directorships of local and national organisations. He has strong self-belief in his personal philosophy around disability.
His core ethos is to provide the tools that will increase an organisation’s delivery of disabled customer service by removing physical barriers and assumptions. He does this through a series of training packages, consultancy and access auditing, that enables organisations and delegates to learn by encouraging them to look at issues currently preventing good customer service for disabled customers. Organisations and delegates are taken on a journey of self-discovery through interesting and lively evidence based debate. Iain is using his professional expertise to assist HWS to increase equality and tackle diversity in north Hampshire, to lessen the gap between our ethnic minority communities and the rest the local community.” Iain is Non-Executive Director at Hampshire Wellbeing Services and head of research and consultation.
