The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Centre

We provide an open award centre for young people aged 14–24. You can do your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award here if you can’t do it at school or at college. A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. If you feel there’s more to life than sitting on a sofa playing video games, come and join us.

You achieve an award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections: Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition.  At Gold level you also need to complete a fifth, Residential section.
