Julie Jaye Charles

I am Chief Executive and founder of Equalities National Council (ENC) of Disabled People and Carers from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities. For 33 years, I have been deeply involved in developing Black (BME) Community driven strategies directly on improving the well-being, representation and social inclusion of those communities.

Over the past 25 years, along with a team of dedicated individuals and supportive organisations, my energies have been focused on developing: firm, sustainable, Local, National and International BME Disabled People and Carer driven agencies.

Through my work I have advised on a variety of boards, all of which have of course benefited from my Entrepreneur style and wealth of grass roots knowledge. My commitment to the cause is by no means to be underestimated. I formed my first enterprise at the age of 17!!
