Father Figure Launch

    Happy Fathers Day to all Positive Father Figures!!!!

Today marks the launch of an initiative setup to support encourage and empower father figures.

By now you should be aware of the range of activities taking place for children on the day.

However in attendance will also be:

Ashley Walters

Jimmy Akinbola

Paul Blake

All of these men feel that this is an inspirational initiative and have all made changes in their individual schedules at short notice to attend the launch today.  

Father would like to thank our special guests for their support.

Below is you can find out more about these individuals

                                                         Jimmy Akingbola

Award-winning actor Jimmy Akingbola has rescheduled filming to be with us today.

Due to legal reason we’re not allowed to mention the corporation he works for or the incredibly

popular Tuesday night TV show he appears in. But I’m sure many of you will recognise his face as he’s probably the most arrogant character on the box right now AND he’s got quite a controversial storyline.

Starting his career on stage Jimmy honed his craft in theatre productions before making the leap to TV. An accomplished actor – who recently scooped two Best Male actor Awards – he’s appeared in  

The Crouches, The Bill, Holby Blue, New Tricks and Doctors – have we spotted a theme yet?

Someone likes wearing uniforms…

Ashley Walters

Apparently I’ve only got 21 seconds to go… I’ve got 21 seconds to say what I’ve got say about…

Mr Ashley Walters Yes, the former So Solid star has come along way since the most talked about urban group to hit the UK music scene. Brit and Mobo Award winner, also known as Asher D, he’s now returned to his first love – acting. With roles in Hustle and Small Island under his belt Ashley also scooped a Best Newcomer award for Bullet Boy. But he didn’t stop there as he’s been in two Hollywood blockbusters – Stormbreaker and 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Trying – Remember the kid in the wheelchair?  

This year he’s already starred in the Beeb’s sci-fi drama Outcasts, made a cameo in  

Anuvahood and appears in Brit film Suicide Kids – and it’s only June! Next up he’s working on

Top Boys, the British version of The Wire. Watch your back Idris Elba…

Paul Blake

Is a producer and director, it’s highly likely you’ve watched or heard of one of his TV documentaries

as he’s been making them for the last 15 years! BAFTA-nominated producer and director Paul is the

man behind TV’s most thought-provoking documentaries including the acclaimed

High Society’s Favourite Gigolo about the first black celebrity, Hutch! Never one to shy away from

controversial topics Paul produced: Stick and Stones, Batty Man and Giving up the Weed.

He’s just landed a huge TV deal with Channel 4 to make even more culturally diverse documentaries

so we’ll be watching a lot more of Paul’s work in the future.

Definition of A Father Figure

A father figure is usually an older man, often one in a position of power or influence, who arouses emotions usually felt for a person's father, and with whom a person identifies.

Father figure is seeking to combine honest messages and social media to reach out to men with positive advice. We will host events and work in partnership with individuals, groups and organisations to promote positive fathering.

Father Figure is aware of the impact that a positive father figures can have on the lives of children.
