2020/2021_ ANNUAL REPORT The Diana Award

NEVER MORE NEEDED_

The Covid-19 pandemic and the climate emergency have affected the lives of millions, exacerbating social inequalities and impacting on mental as well as physical health. These effects have been felt most acutely by young people.

4.3 million

children living in poverty in the UK in March 2020

963,000

young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) in the UK

Nearly half (46%)

young people reported experiencing bullying behaviour in the last 12 months

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, 70% of our young people are more engaged than ever with social and community action, with 98% of gen Z saying that they care about the problems the world faces. 

The Diana Award was founded on the belief that young people have the power to change the world. More than 20 years on it remains a firm foundation for our work. We celebrate and support young people leading change in their communities. And we break down barriers for future change makers to shape today’s world.

We exist to empower young people to make positive change in their lives, their communities and the world.

WE KNOW THAT WE CAN’T ACHIEVE ANY OF THIS ALONE. BY WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE AND PARTNERS WE CAN CREATE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.

DO YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED?
