MEET THE YOUNG PEOPLE SUPPORTED BY THE DIANA AWARD_

Creating tangible impact in the lives of young people is at the core of everything we do at The Diana Award. We impact young people’s life experience and enable them to participate in this world as positive and self-confident changemakers. We appreciate that impact comes in many shapes – big and small; sometimes a good conversation with the right person at the right time can make all the difference.

Have a look at our young people stories to find out how we have impacted young people’s lives and how our programmes help young people create positive change.

YOUTH VOICE IN POLITICS_

The Diana Award Youth Insight Report 2024

Existing research has shown a strained relationship between politics and young people. Youth engagement experts call for politicians to close this alienation gap by empowering young people to have their voices heard. However, little research exists into young people’s perspectives, experiences, and desires when it comes to youth voice in politics, so we need guidance and insight from them to find a solution.

That is why we carried out a comprehensive research initiative investigating the state of youth voice and youth engagement in politics in the UK. Our study involved a survey distributed to young people aged 13-25 in the UK, focus groups with young people, case studies and peer research. Our Youth Voice in Politics Report will be showcased at an exclusive event on 18 July and then revealed to the public, so make sure you sign up and be the first to read it!
