Volunteer committees

Our volunteer fundraising committees are dynamic groups of businessmen and businesswomen who believe in the work of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award and use their extensive expertise and networks to further the work of our charity.

They are tasked with organising events and introducing new initiatives to spread the message about our work to new audience, helping us raise our profile and to enable us to fulfil our strategic objectives.
