The Diana Award is the only lasting memorial to Diana Princess of Wales. The award was founded in 1999 as a legacy to Diana’s belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
To date 39,000 young people, who have made a positive difference to their community, have been celebrated with a Diana Award. By shining the spotlight on our Award Holders, we establish them as role models for other young people.
Through the Diana Network, the anti-bullying programme and our mentoring programmes, we engage, encourage and motivate young people to keep up the good work!
We aim to:
•Celebrate young people’s contribution to society
•Encourage socially responsible young citizens from all walks of life
•Reduce bullying in schools and communities
•Engage motivated and socially responsible young people with disengaged and unemployed young people
We achieve these aims through our core programmes:
The Diana Award is presented to inspirational young people who have made a positive difference to the lives of others and their communities.
“It’s an honour to receive the Diana Award. The award is something special to me because it not only rewards young people for the good things they but gives them a platform to develop themselves personally for the future.” Cameron – Diana Champion Fundraiser.
