We EXIST to empower young people to make positive change_

The Diana Award was founded on the late Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change their community, their country and the world. We exist to empower young people to make that positive change. We do this by:

Unlocking Potential

With support, guidance and opportunities every young person can reach their full potential, ensuring no young person is left out or left behind.

Creating Opportunities

Young people deserve a seat at the table to shape decisions about our shared future.  Their voice enriches decision-making and inspires us all to do more and do better.

INSPIRING ACTION

With the right support and advocacy, young people have the passion, energy and insight to lead the change they want to see, for themselves, their communities and the world around them.
