ACTIVISM

GIVING BACK: David is proud to support a number of charities and organisations in raising awareness and giving back to much needed causes. Over the years, he has used his used his public profile to appeal to the black community in donating stem cells, talking about organ donation and blood donation, encouraging ethnic minorities to ensure they vote during general elections and most recently speaking 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. 

Mental Health Foundation

Ambassador 2018

On World Mental Health Day 2017, David shared his own personal experience of mental health on social media to help raise awareness. The response was astounding and David has since been made Ambassador of the Mental Health Foundation. The Mental Health Foundation is the leading UK charity working in mental health.
He campaigned during Mental Health Awareness Week for open dialogue surrounding mental health for all.
As 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.
