Amey began supporting the DofE in 2003 and in January 2014, they became a Strategic Partner of the charity to enable more marginalised young people to have access to achieve their DofE Award. Amey also support every apprentice through their Gold DofE as part of their training.

Amey works with more than 15 local authorities to help keep towns and cities running smoothly, including Birmingham, Sheffield and Staffordshire. It also partners 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.
Amey’s collaborative approach means it gets the job done, on time and to budget. Its clients trust them to deliver – whether it’s providing key utilities, collecting refuse or maintaining roads and railways.
Amey believes in sharing its knowledge and learning from best practices. It’s how it makes sure they do things a bit better every day.
Amey and the DofE work closely to design personal development opportunities for its Apprenticeship Programme, which enables its apprentices to benefit from the unique learning experience that the DofE Gold Business Award programme delivers.
“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.”
– Andy Milner, CEO of Amey
