Alex Holmes

Alex is a deputy CEO of the charity The Diana Award, founder of Anti-Bullying Pro,  an ambassadors for  Queens Young Leaders,  and a Director of BBC Children in Need.

Regarded as an expert on anti-bullying, he is also an advisory member of the boards of some major social media platforms, including TikTok, Spotify, Instagram and Facebook.

Growing up with Spanish Jamaican heritage, Alex was on the receiving end of racial bullying behaviour during his school years which, as he got older, developed into homophobic bullying.

These early experiences of bullying left their mark and at the age of just 15, Alex made the brave decision to make a stand – not only for him but for others experiencing bullying behaviour – when he set up the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme.

Since then, through this Programme, he has helped train over 40,000 young people in 4,000 schools across the world to stand up to bullying online and offline.

Alex is also a trusted government advisor and regularly appears on  ITV’s This Morning and CBBC Newsround to share his expertise.
