Anna Alexander Receives Grant 13th January 2020

Anna is Co-Founder of Split Banana: a social enterprise which uses an arts-based approach to deliver relationship and sex education (RSE) to young people.

Like nearly all those who grew up in the UK, Anna’s own RSE ranged from non-existent to terrible.  She believes that many of the problems we are facing today – from transphobia to toxic masculinity – could be prevented with more spaces for open and compassionate education, at an early age.  The classroom is the perfect place to begin these conversations.

Split Banana believes that every student in the UK has the right to access an RSE which reflects their lived realities, and empowers them to have healthy relationships with their minds, bodies and each other.
