Diocese of Chichester Youth

Duke of Edinburgh's Award


Signups now open - We will be offering both Bronze and Silver award this year.


If you have done your bronze award with us and because of temporary DofE rules in place until Oct 2023 your bronze qualifying expedition can double up as your silver practice. We also know you have had a thorough training programme for Bronze which has been delayed through no fault of your own.

Therefore we can offer you a simplified Silver programme in 2023.

You must be able to commit to all of the dates below and you must attend the October bronze qualifier.

There will also be planning tasks to complete in your own time and local sessions organised in Horsham/Lewes.

Sign up here for the silver programme (£60): https://forms.gle/s3W6ENPjZeypqRt39


If you are interested in Bronze award or would like to sign up then you can do so online. Before you commit you may be interested in attending an information evening. We will be hosting potential new participants and any parents that would like to attend on the 17th October 18:30 at the Barn, St Mary's Parish Centre, Causeway, Horsham. This will be a hybrid meeting and you will be able to attend on zoom as well. Zoom details to follow soon.

If you're in or near Horsham or Lewes you can signup here (£60). If you're somewhere else then we need a minimum of five participants to start a new group. Get in touch via dan.jenkins@chichester.anglican.org for more information.

You can access the eDofE using the link to the left.

Your centre may have its own individual training day dates. These will be published as soon as they are confirmed, but please talk to your group leader if you have any further questions.
