Challenge yourself, change a life

When young people are challenged to achieve more than they think they can, it changes their life forever. Every young person, regardless of background, deserves the opportunity to realise what they’re capable of.

At the moment, we aren’t able to reach all those who need us. There are currently thousands of young people who want to access the life-changing impact of the DofE but face barriers. That could be a physical, mental health, or financial barrier.

We're raising £1 million so that 25,000 young people facing barriers can start their DofE.

It’s time to take on a challenge, raise money and change a young person’s life.

Top fundraisers

Some of the amazing Challengers raising funds to support young people.

Age 15, Jade lost both her legs beneath the knee after they were crushed in an accident.

“The thing about the DofE is, it’s tough and sometimes you want to give up. But once you’ve gone so far, you can’t give up – you have to get yourself to the end. Then you realise what you’re capable of.”
