“The benefits the DofE has brought to the nation are enormous.  Young people need to be inspired and be able to fulfil their dreams.  The DofE allows young people from every background to succeed – it’s getting rid of barriers.  As someone from a disadvantaged background, I can relate to this.”

Expedition Approved Activity Providers (AAPs) are organisations which have been licensed by The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to provide expedition opportunities to participants.
