Care Experienced Activist David Akinsanya

David Akinsanya


Not long after leaving youth custody, David got involved with a group called Black and In Care. He helped make a powerful video about the experiences of youngsters in the system. The film was used to train social workers and to raise important issues. He often showed the film and watched people come to more understanding just by hearing the lived experiences. David continued his activism and became a researcher for TV, his proudest moment was the making of “Find me a family” which addressed the need to find people to adopt older kids and siblings. He can be found on Twitter @DavidAkinsanya
