ABOUT US

The Diana Award is 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. We all play our part to help realise this vision and our team is diverse in its talents and roles. Day-to-day we can be found working out in the community with young people through our anti-bullying and mentoring initiatives, fundraising, managing our valued corporate partners, providing vital HR and communications support, celebrating young people in memory of Princess Diana and plenty more.

We’re not your typical organisation. From the moment that you join The Diana Award, you’re part of our family. Together, we are united by our shared belief that young people can change the world, and, by our values: passion, collaboration, integrity, ambition and unity.
