Zaki lives with and cares for his mother, Forhat, in South London. As a director, he is involved with For Brian both in a professional capacity - providing financial and bookkeeping support - and in his capacity as someone with lived experience as a young carer. 
Zaki was particularly attracted to For Brian because of its values of co-production and co-operation and is keen to be part of an organisation building an inclusive and diverse community.
