At the end of the day, pupils made an action plan of how to approach bullying issues that may arise in their schools and committed to their roles as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.

The Diana Award’s free Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme works with students and young people across the UK to change attitudes surrounding bullying. The Programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, with facilitators giving young people the skills and confidence to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. The Diana Award’s anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class, thanks to this sustainable approach.

Set up by HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Sussex, the award was founded as a lasting legacy to their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales and it’s ethos is based on her belief that young people have the power to change the world. The anti bullying programme alone has trained over 50,000 young people across the UK to lead on anti-bullying campaigns in their schools.
