If you’re aged 13-25 years and go to school in Merton, you can take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) through our youth service.

DofE is a national accredited scheme recognised by employers and further and higher education institutes. It gives you the opportunity to:

  • develop existing or new interests
  • experience adventure
  • make new friends through a personal development programme

Activities include sport, volunteering, skills and expeditions.

How to take part

You can get advice and information on DofE at our Open Award Centre at John Innes Youth Centre.
