ACTIVISM

UNICEF UK AMBASSADOR

David Harewood has been appointed unicef UK Ambassador. David has has supported unicef since 2018, most notably as goalkeeper for the England Soccer Aid team. His trip to Sierra Leone shone a light on unicef’s work delivering life-saving vaccines and neo-natal health services for children and their families. We have now all learnt just how important the delivery of vaccinations are. And this is as important today in areas such as Sierra Leone. David addressed MPs at the Houses of Parliament and his appeal films have helped raise millions of pounds in donations. And – he’s done all of this in between back to back filming of TV, film and documentaries. He joins the unicef family of Serena Williams, Orlando Bloom, David Beckham, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Queen Rania of Jordan and Tom Hiddleston.

AN ADVOCATE FOR Mental Health

On World Mental Health Day 2017, David shared his own personal experience of mental health on social media to help raise awareness to his audience. The response was astounding and David was soon comisioned by the BBC to produce his a documentary about his journey. During this time David acted as the Ambassador for the Mental Health Foundation, the leading UK charity working in mental health. He campaigned during Mental Health Awareness Week for open dialogue surrounding mental health for all.
During this same period of time, organised by Prince William and Prince Harry for their charity Heads Together, David was also asked to be part the historical Mental Health Minute in which over 500 radio stations in the UK, all played out a one minute message ‘to let everyone know that whoever you are, however you’re feeling and whatever you’re going through, it’s okay to say.’ He is currently filming a very personal documentary for the BBC – on his lived experience of his own battle with Mental Health which is scheduled to air in the fall of 2018. 

Using his platform for change and equality

GIVING BACK: Throughout his career David is proud to have supported countless charities and organisations in raising awareness and giving back to much needed causes. Over the years, he has his public profile and platform as a cause for change, and a cause for good.  David has been filmed and photographed in campaigns including appealing to the black community to encourage stem cell donation. He has spoken about organ donation and blood donation. As well as encouraging ethnic minorities to ensure they vote during general elections. Most recently he has spoken out about the Windrush Generation. ​He is a huge champion of representation in the arts and has given countless interviews and written many articles on the need for relatable and realistic roles for black and ethnic actors and their audiences. He continues to be recognised for the breadth of work he does, both in the diversity of the roles he plays and his work at home and across the pond.
