“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”

Diana, Princess of Wales

The Diana Award is awarded to courageous, caring, compassionate young people, transforming the lives of others in the name of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Diana Award holders come from all walks of life and many have challenging and disadvantaged backgrounds, however they share a deep sense of social responsibility. They could be giving up their time to mentor other students, a young carer, taking part in anti-bullying initiatives, fundraising or campaigning for a cause close to their heart. Whatever they are doing, they have one thing in common, a desire to make a difference and improve the lives of others.

We know that if young people are encouraged for their efforts, they are empowered to reach their full potential and feel confident they can make change happen.

Know a young person or group of young people, aged 9-18 that fits this description?

Nominate them for a Diana Award today!


Over the coming 2016-2017 academic year, The Diana Award will be showcasing and celebrating Award Holders from across the UK as part of INSPIRE Series. If your nominee is successful then they will be invited to their regional INSPIRE Series event where not only will they receive their Award in an official Diana Award Ceremony but they will also be given the opportunity to advance their skill-set in specially tailored workshops and network with other young people in their local area.
