The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is one of the UK’s best loved and important charities for young people. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities. Last year the charity supported over 270,000 young people to start their DofE journey, including tens of thousands facing disadvantage.

The DofE gives young people the skills and character to bridge the gap into adulthood; gaining experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives and developing skills that will be invaluable in securing and flourishing in employment.

Despite being a small charity, the DofE reaches over 400,000 young people in the UK at any given time. It is the charity’s ambition to help even more young people access the life-changing opportunities that the DofE provides, ensuring every young person has the chance to fulfil their potential and have a bright future.
