As young people face up to today’s challenges, we know the DofE has never been more needed.
In line with our strategy, Youth Without Limits, we are committed to ensuring that DofE is open to all young people and that our participants reflect the most diverse generation of young people ever.
To tackle barriers to participation, we are working with strategic partners within the youth and sport sectors to establish a sustainable DofE offer throughout their network, supported by funding from the Department for Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS).
This funding is now open for applications until January 2025. The fund offers grant funding of up to £10,250 for eligible youth and sport sector organisations to set up and deliver the DofE, including the enrolment costs for marginalised young people across the UK.
We not only offer grant funding but support organisations every step of the way. This includes a dedicated member of staff working collaboratively to support everything from training, mentoring, reporting, and monitoring the progress of young people on their DofE journey.
