What We Do

We work with over 42,000 young people in London who participate in DofE programmes through local authorities, independent schools, secondary schools and academies, youth organisations, housing associations and charities.

The DofE works with young people from a range of community groups including young people Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), faith groups, and those experiencing disadvantage. We support over 10,000 disadvantaged young Londoners every year.

By investing in the young people of today, we are supporting the leaders of tomorrow.

New Leaders Programme

DofE London’s New Leaders Programme continues to grow and has proved to be increasingly popular. Building on programmes from previous years, DofE Managers from across the London Region can nominate young people doing their Gold DofE programmes to take part on our leadership training course.

Gold Award Forum
The Gold Award Forum is the voice of young people in London and are ambassadors for the DofE. Representing the variety of organisations we work with, each yearly cohort provides DofE London with valuable feedback to ensure our work remains relevant to the young people of London.
