The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Since 1956, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) Charity has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people across the globe, from all backgrounds. This is a journey that each individual controls, where they set their own challenges and targets, push personal boundaries and gain meaningful and future-shaping experiences. 

From volunteering to physical activities or life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE has a positive impact on young people’s personal development and employability. It also has an effect on wider society: from charities gaining active and engaged volunteers, to businesses hiring work-ready recruits.

RSM has sponsored the DofE for more than a decade. In 2016 we were proud to be Headline Diamond partner for the DofE during its 60 year anniversary celebrations. Nearly 1,000 of our people took part in the DofE’s Diamond Challenge to raise funds and awareness for the charity and support more young people in our communities to shine.
