Youmanity reports on an inspirational charity The Diana Award. The organisation, with branches in Sheffields, Leeds and Birmingham, runs a number of programs, more notably a successful Anti-Bullying program. This involves the active participation of Ambassadors who are passionate about stopping bullying, some have even been bullied themselves. In fact, their experiences form the very foundation the charity's anti-bullying campaigns. In return for their support, Ambassadors get to represent The Diana Award at important events and meet inspiring and special people.
"YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE WORLD"
Anti-Bullying Campaigns have a strong peer-to-peer focus. It encourages young people to become 'Ambassadors' in their own school. The charity makes sure they receive the skills and gain the confidence necessary to tackle bullying in their schools - long after the training has finished.Ambassadors are special, approachable and sensitive young people whose presence on school grounds has proven to deter bullying. They wear special T-shirts to make them that bit more noticeable. So far the Anti-Bullying programme has trained in excess of 24,000 young people across the UK!
