Haris's journey of championing children and young people’s health started when he founded the youth board at Leeds Community Healthcare Trust. This acted as a springboard for him to explore and carry on his passion for children and young people's health and wellbeing. He is Founder and Chair of the National Network of Youth Forums which works with over 50 NHS Trusts across England. He was recently appointed as Youth Representative on the Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group.

Haris is also a member of the National NHS Youth Forum where he co-led on the forum's report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. He has led on work which looked at Medical Students' knowledge of health inequalities, which is now being carried on by NHSE’s Director for Health Inequalities. He is currently working with the Royal College of General Practitioners on health inequalities and is a member of the #iwill campaign's Health and Social Care Group. Haris is currently on a gap year and will be studying Medicine at the University of Liverpool in September 2021.
