Our mission is to foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of young people.

We’re proud to be the only charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to change the world. It’s a big mission but there are two things within it that we focus our charity’s efforts on – young people and change.

Throughout all of our programmes and initiatives ‘change’ for and by young people is central. Our Anti-Bullying work encourages change in attitudes and behaviours for young people by young people, our Mentoring schemes guide change for some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people and our flagship Award programme recognises the young people driving selfless change across the world.

We’re thrilled to have you here with us – we certainly can’t do it alone. We’d like to invite you to learn more about who we are and to be one of the many individuals and organisations around the world who make continuing Princess Diana’s legacy possible.
