Mentors urged to step forward to improve the life chances of vulnerable young people

Supported by HRH Prince Harry, The Diana Award Mentoring programme pairs young people with volunteers from the world of work who can support them with a campaign or social action project, as well as give them an insight into their potential future after school and careers skills training. The programme is running across Leeds City Region, Sheffield City Region, York, North Yorkshire and East Riding, Greater Birmingham and Solihull and London. 

Mentoring is a vital component to break down the barriers of social mobility in the lives of disengaged young people. The Diana Award's mentors play a significant role in shaping the lives of others, especially the most vulnerable.

As a part of The Diana Award’s planned activities for National Mentoring Week, Birmingham MP Preet Gill is publishing a letter calling on other MPs to commit to mentor a young person in their local constituencies.

The Diana Award was set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Their mission is to foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of young people.
