The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people. 

The award provides a balanced programme of activities that develops the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and teamworking.  Young people progress through three levels of the program to achieve a Bronze, Silver and Gold award.Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem.  It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their DofE.

Participants can be between the ages of 14 and 24.
