The Roll of Honour

Oh my goodness me, what an absolutely gob-smacking moment of unbelievability and excitement, a Princess Diana Award, the most exclusive award that could ever be given and Keeley was chosen to receive it.

The Diana Award is an International Award for those going above and beyond in their Communities.                                                                                   

Only 4 people received this prestigious Award in Australia last year in 2019.

The Diana Award was established in 1999 by the British Government who wanted to continue Princess Diana’s legacy by establishing a formal way to recognise young people who were going above and beyond the expectations in their local communities. Too many young voices go unheard; our work strives to help elevate those voices onto a higher platform. Since then, we’ve had quite the journey, but our core focus has remained the same, empowering young people to change the world.
