The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is an adventure and volunteering programme for people aged between 14 and 24.

You complete activities in 4 categories:

  • volunteering
  • physical
  • skills
  • expedition
  • residential (Gold Award only)

The award has three levels, bronze, silver and gold, with a range of activities in each one. You'll find yourself helping people, getting fitter and learning new skills.

It's an award that’s highly valued by employers, colleges and universities.

Find out more about the award on the official Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website.

There's always a need for adult volunteers to support the programme.
