Duke of Edinburgh

Our Vision:

To inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and recognise their achievements.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills. There are three progressive levels of programmes which when successfully completed lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Young people create their own DofE programme by choosing a volunteering, physical and skills activity, going on an expedition and for their Gold Award, taking part in a residential activity.
