Any young person who wants to take up the challenge can achieve a DofE Award – whoever they are, wherever they’re from, whatever their background, interests or abilities.

Follow students from New Siblands School near Bristol as they prepare for their expedition – and hear from them, their parents and staff about the difference doing the DofE has made to participants and the wider school.

There’s lots of organisations like New Siblands School doing amazing DofE work with young people, and we want to understand the impact that has.

The DofE is currently carrying out major research into the benefits of the DofE experience for young people with SEND — and we want to hear from as many voices as possible.

If you support young people with SEND to do their DofE, it would make a big difference to our work if you could complete our quick survey – and encourage your colleagues, participants, Award holders and parents to take part too.
