The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – Diamond Challenge

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a charity that has been dedicated to helping young people give it their all since 1956. With every challenge they take on, and every DofE Award they work towards, young people from all walks of life have been given a chance to shine.

As part of the DofE’s Diamond Anniversary celebrations, everyone is invited to take the DofE Diamond Challenge. The Challenge is inspired by the DofE Award, asking you to take on your own adventure, personal or skill challenge.

Your challenge can be as big or as small as you like, from kayaking the Zambesi to learning to knit. If it’s a challenge to you, it counts. And the best part is, it’s open to anyone of any age, anywhere!

So if you never had the chance to get involved while growing up, if your kids are doing it now, if you’re doing your own DofE or if you’re just looking for a reason to get out of your comfort zone, seize the day!

Sign up and your £20 (£15 for under 18s) fee gets you an exclusive Challenger Kit – complete with t-shirt and Challenge Companion, a journal and keepsake to help you at each stage of your challenge; from choosing, to planning, taking part and remembering it forever.

To complete your Challenge, you need to raise a minimum of £60. Then you’ll not only be rewarded with a limited edition DofE Diamond Challenge pin and a huge sense of achievement, you’ll also help to transform lives.

Raise £40 and you’ll help fund the registration cost of a DofE programme for a young person from a disadvantaged community. Raise £100 and you’ll help DofE to train more inspiring DofE Leaders. Or reach £150 and you’ll fund one of the DofE’s specially-trained local operations team for a day.
