The Diana Award warmly congratulates its Chair of Trustees Wayne Bulpitt who has been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday honours list. The award was made in recognition of his services to young people.
Wayne is a passionate supporter of social entrepreneurship, especially supporting and developing young people. In 2009 he became the UK’s first Chief Commissioner of the Scout Association with the responsibility for leading the UK movements 550,000 members.

Expressing his delight at having been recognised for his work, Wayne said “It is both a privilege and honour to be recognised in this way for something I have enjoyed so much. It is also humbling as I have been fortunate to see and work with so very many amazing people across the UK and further afield who give so much themselves to make a real difference to the lives of young people”.
