Undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards alongside Scouting awards gives you the unique opportunity of two valuable accreditations. See link.
A team of County Duke of Edinburgh Award Advisors has been appointed to give support to this scheme in each District. Please contact the Advisor for your District if you have any questions about completing any of the sections of the Award level you are working on.
Registrations are managed by Jan Vanderplank in the County Office and Richard Williams (ACC 14 to 25) is available to provide support across the County.
