The Programme - The Diana Award is the only legacy charity in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales. Through our Mentoring Programme, we pair volunteer mentors from the world of work with young people who are at risk of becoming Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), to give them an insight into the world of work and career skills training. The Programme is available in London, Leeds and Birmingham.
