The Diana Award is a charity legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
Since 1999, over 47,000 young people have been recognised with a Diana Award for the outstanding difference they are making in their communities across the globe.
With the support of HRH Prince William and HRH Prince Harry, The Diana Award aims to inspire and recognise social action in young people by going beyond its original Awards programme with three additional youth led initiatives that emphasise a peer led approach.
We foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of young people. We do this in three key ways:
Facilitating change through practical action with young people.
Rewarding positive change made by young people.
Celebrating and supporting ongoing change in young people
