Established in memory of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.
This is the longest running award for young people through a retrospective nomination process only.
Young people do not work towards the award, rather they demonstrate their suitability through their actions, without any expectation of reward.
In 2023 our founder Nicola was extremely honoured to have been chosed to be a judge for these prestigious awards, and was overwhelmed and humbled at the stories that she heard.
We are immensely grateful for the support and recognition bestowed upon Megan's Starr.
These awards inspire us to continue our mission with even greater determination, ensuring that every young individual receives the necessary support and resources to navigate their mental health journey successfully.
Through these accolades, we reaffirm our commitment to advocating for youth mental health and striving to create a world where every young person feels understood, supported, and empowered.
At Megan's Starr, we remain dedicated to our mission of empowering youth and fostering mental health awareness to create a brighter and healthier future for generations to come.
