Duke of Edinburgh
What is it about?
The DofE gives you the chance to do something completely new and improve on things you’re already doing. It takes you out of your comfort zone and into a place where you’ll push yourself and have amazing new experiences. You’ll build confidence, resilience, skills and friendship groups, And you’ll have a brilliant time doing it.
Looking forward, the DofE can help you to carve out a better future. Colleges, universities and employers regard a DofE Award highly so it will help to open the right doors for you. If you’re keen to get off the sofa and put 100% into something that could change your life, the DofE is for you.
What is involved?
Once you’ve signed up for the DofE, you can start planning your DofE programme. Choose from a range of volunteering, physical, skills and expedition activities that will set you up for life.
Perhaps you want to help out at a local youth club or improve your swimming? Learn how to bake or go hiking? Work out what excites you and makes a difference to you and the people around you.
Who can take part?
Anybody, except those who already hold the award for that level, it is designed for everybody to challenge themselves. If there are physical, learning or financial issues you feel may prevent you from trying then contact us, variations are made on an individual basis.
