We negotiate discounts with relevant companies so that costs can be kept to a minimum. If you’re helping to run the DofE you could be entitled to a DofE Card* which gives at least 15% off, and often more, at GO Outdoors, Blacks, Millets, Ultimate Outdoors and Tiso. Young people doing their DofE will also benefit from a DofE Voucher* giving them at least a 10% discount at our Recommended Retailers.
Other offers, from partners such as Go Ape and YHA, can be found on our DofE Shopping website. And there’s a double benefit to buying items through this site – whilst you get a great discount, the DofE Charity receives a small commission, helping us to grow the DofE so more young people can get involved.

Your organisation could help run part of a young person’s DofE programme, such as volunteering, residential or their expedition. We work with commercial and not-for-profit organisations with local, national and international reach. From conservation projects to sailing expeditions, if you have the right opportunity, you could be part of the DofE story. We’ll check that you meet our programme requirements and sectional conditions before we give you the relevant licence.
