We are the Anti-Bullying Pros!

A big hello from the team behind the Diana Award's Anti-Bullying Campaign. 

To contact any of the Anti-Bullying team please email: antibullying@diana-award.org.uk with the staff member's name you would like to contact in the subject field. 


Alex Holmes
Head of Anti-Bullying Campaign

I was bullied at school and started a campaign in my school, creating Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. For this I received the Diana Anti-Bullying Award. From there I went on to create a TV advert against bullying and now I am lucky enough to run The Diana Award’s Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme.  I have worked in lots of schools in the past 7 years. The best part of my job is seeing thousands of young people get excited and make things happen.

Katie Collett
Anti-Bullying Project Manager

As a Project Manager my role involves expanding our Anti-bullying Campaign to cover issues such as internet safety and body confidence, and working with partners such as Vodafone and ASOS to deliver resources on these topics to young people across the country.

I have previously worked as a Marketing & Communications Manager with research agency Populus, and as a Policy Adviser on secondment to the Department for Education. What I love about my job is helping young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to thrive.

Frankie spivey
Events and Marketing Co-ordinator

I am the Events & Marketing Co-ordinator for the Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme. I enjoy working with The Diana Award and the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors team as my job enables me to make a positive difference to the lives of young people. I hope to enable young people to have the skills and confidence to beat bullying and ensure that all young people feel safe in their schools and communities.

Paul hanmore
lead anti-bullying trainer

I am responsible for the delivery of the anti-bullying training events and continuing to develop the programme for young people and adults alike to take a stand against bullying. 

I have worked with Young People in schools, young offenders, mental health and LGBT support groups. Within all these contexts, bullying has affected most of the Young People I have worked with so I chose to work for The Diana Award for these reasons and I have personally experienced bullying.

I want to empower Young People to take a brave step, just like I did, in making a stand against bullying and making the world a better place for everyone.

Ellie cooper
Projects Coordinator - Enable & Facebook

I coordinate the work within the Diana Award’s anti-bullying partnerships which include Facebook and ENABLE. I am currently designing training workshops and resources for ENABLE, an EU wide anti-bullying project. As we are Facebook’s Safety Partners, I work on educating young, people, staff and parents on e-safety. I believe that everyone has the right to reach their full potential and should have the support and confidence to do this. Unfortunately, because of bullying for many young people their school years are a struggle. The best part of my job is seeing the inspirational people that with our support, are working to change this situation. 

"My philosophy is to always be happy with who you are, and embrace every little thing about you. It’s what makes you unique!" - Tich

"Growing up, I always stood out and was seen as a little weird which I hated! Now I have come to realise that being different is a cool thing that works for you, not against you." - Vince Kidd

"I think every school should have Anti-Bullying Ambassadors." - Jodie Marsh

"Bullying can be incredibly damaging and it’s important that people come together to end its harmful effects, but also encourage happiness and positivity!” - Will Poulter

"Anyone who is an Anti-Bullying Ambassador should be very proud. I am proud of you." - Craig Roberts

We know how important it is to show kids that if you treat yourself and other people with respect, it will make you happy and successful in the long run. - Twist and Pulse

I believe that at the root of all bullying is the intolerance of difference. Difference should be celebrated. -  Carrie Grant 


Research and policy analyst

My role involves undertaking the evaluation of the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme as well as designing, collating, and analysing research and data to support other aspects of the Anti-Bullying Campaign. I work to ensure that high-quality and rigorous research informs our practice as I believe research is integral to changing policy and public perceptions on bullying. I am passionate about young people, equality, and social justice, and I enjoy giving young people a voice.

Prior to this role, I completed a MSc in Social Policy (Research) at the London School of Economics. I also trained to be a History Teacher through the TeachFirst Leadership Development Programme, working in Birmingham and London secondary schools. 

Tessy ojo
Chief Executive Officer

I am the CEO at the Diana Award and am responsible for the overall strategy and development of the charity. I am passionate about young people and believe that young people deserve to be celebrated for their contribution to society, deserve the opportunity to grow and develop irrespective of their background and young people should be engaged in tackling social issues that affect them.
