The Diana Award is a living legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
The Diana Award does three things:
• Encourages young people for their contribution to their communities, through a retrospective Awards scheme.
• Empowers young people to achieve their full potential, through personal and skills development Network Programme to enable them progress further.
• Engages young people in social action, by channelling their energies into specific youth-led programmes that benefit the wider society, such as our peer led Antibullying Ambassadors and Peer Mentoring Programmes.
Young people aged from 9 to 18 can receive the Award, but there is no age limit to staying involved in the ongoing programmes.
There are now over 40,000 young people who have received the Diana Award, but we are actively engaged with a lot more through our Antibullying Ambassadors Programme and Mentoring Programmes.
For all our programmes what has really made a difference is having partners who are either actively involved in funding them or support in kind – and we need more such partnerships to keep them going and develop them.
For more information on how you can support the Diana Award please contact Tessy.Ojo@diana-award.org.uk or ring the office on 0207 6287499 and help us change young lives today.
The Diana Award has been honoured to be the chosen Charity of the Year 2013 for The FIRM.
