About

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is the world’s leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to be the best they can be. Achieving the DofE award is a game-changer. It can transform a young person’s life by helping them develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in work and life.

Founded in 1956, the DofE is celebrating its diamond anniversary in 2016 – 60 years of incredible young people giving it their all. 

Throughout this year we will be helping the DofE to celebrate this milestone as it marks the next chapter in making a difference to the future prospects of so many young people.
