Due to restrictions currently in place we are unfortunately unable to invite parents to attend an information evening at school.  However both the official DofE website dofe.org and these pages hopefully will contain everything you need to know about the award.  If you are new to the award as either a parent or participant we strongly advise you to take time to work through the information provided and review the guidance notes, costs  and expedition dates fully before you apply.
