He is an advocate of providing access to opportunities for all of Doncaster’s citizens and as such is a member of the Corporate equalities, diversity and inclusion board.
He is supporting the Doncaster Samaritans as his charity. In his maiden Mansion House speech, he said about the Samaritans:
"I've chosen my charity this year to be Doncaster Samaritans because over the years that sense of community has been eroded and they are often the last port of call for people who are in dreadful and horrific situations and that last phone call can be difference between a life lost and a life saved."
Majid encourages everyone to help and support the Doncaster Samaritans with the fantastic work they do.
Majid will be holding Mansion House open days and looks forward to meeting people there.
