Our pledge to DofE Award holders

We also partner with clients like Highways England, BAA, United Utilities, Network Rail, Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Metropolitan Transport Authority in New York, as well as Australia’s Roads and Maritime Services.

Our collaborative approach means we get the job done, on time and to budget. Our clients trust us to deliver – whether it’s providing key utilities, collecting refuse, or maintaining roads and railways.

We believe in sharing our knowledge and learning from best practices. It’s how we make sure we do things a bit better every day.


Amey has been a supporting partner of the DofE Charity since 2002 and Gold Partners since 2009. In 2014 we formed a strategic partnership specifically for disadvantaged young people, aiming to support and target individuals to have access to attain their DofE Award.

Amey and the DofE work closely to design personal development opportunities for our Apprenticeship Programme, which enables our apprentices to benefit from the unique learning experience that the DofE Gold Business Award delivers.



Amey apprentices

“Amey has sponsored apprentices to achieve their DofE Awards for six years and in that time we’ve seen it have a real impact on the young people we work with. Our young people are encouraged to push themselves outside of their comfort zones when doing their DofE and the skills that they develop can be life-changing.”
