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

We aim to create a world where young people can reach their full potential whatever their circumstances.  Our ethos is to enable every young person of every background to do their Duke of Edinburgh's Award and succeed, regardless of any barriers.

About the Award

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award program is a series 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 DofE programmes to achieve a Bronze, Silver or 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.  Our participants are aged between 14 and 24.
