As we will soon be celebrating Father’s Day, this issue focuses on men, and I would like to shout out to all the dads, step-dads, adopted dads, brothers, uncles, grandfathers – and to any other great men out there, who do not slot into one of the titles listed – Happy Father’s Day. You do a great job! Absent fathers are often blamed for the ills in society: youth violence, gangs and knife crime. But there is some great work being carried out to address these issues. Two recent projects launched are The Ascension Trust Synergy Programme and Beyond the Blade, an initiative by The Guardian, full details are on P6. Esther Kuku celebrates the value of men, Prince Laryea shares how he shocked his parents with his chosen career as a hip-hop artist, Triple O talks about mental health and depression. We catch up with The Voice finalist, Michelle John, and Pastor Donnie McClurkin speaks of his relationship with the people of London. Enjoy!
