The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award supports over 240,000 young people every year, almost 50,000 of those in the South East Region. Their ethos is to enable all young people whatever their background to take part in their programme and succeed, regardless of any barriers.
Anyone aged between 14 and 24 can take part at one of three progressive levels, Bronze, Silver or Gold. From helping people or the community, getting fitter, developing skills, going on an expedition and more the programme provides young people with experiences, friendships and talents that will stay with them for life.
From March to September lots of young people trek across the Surrey Hills on their DofE Expeditions. We are aware that as the numbers of young people undertaking their DofE increases so will the numbers using these areas. We are working hard in partnership with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Surrey County Council to reduce the impact on the environment.
