Complete Your Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award with The Sunnywood Project

The Bronze DofE Award is a life-changing experience available to young people in Year 9 or aged 14+.

Any young person can do their DofE – regardless of ability, gender, or background. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first - It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries.

The Sunnywood Project has a dedicated team of staff and volunteers providing the full award with support and guidance across all sections, and full Expedition training and facilitation.

What's Involved?

There are four sections to complete at Bronze Level. To complete these, you will choose activities which will involve helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, whilst training for and completing an Expedition.

It's Your Award - It's Your Choice!

You’ll have the full support and guidance of your DofE Leader as you choose which activities to complete alongside contact sessions with your DofE Group to meet other young people, make new friends, and generally have fun!


You can start your award in Year 9 or as soon as you have turned 14. Anyone up to the age of 25 can achieve their Bronze DofE.

How much will it cost?

Both the DofE and The Sunnywood Project endeavour to keep costs as low as possible. At the moment, participation places, including the Welcome Pack, cost £28 from the DofE for the Bronze Award.

Including this cost, completing the Bronze Award through The Sunnywood Project will be £85 from April 2024.

This includes:

  • The Participation Place and Welcome Pack from the DofE

  • DofE Card entitling you to discounts at a range of retailers, online and in-store

  • Contact sessions with your DofE Leader

  • Expedition Training sessions

  • Facilitation of the Bronze Qualifier Expedition, including use of shared gear and kit such as tents, stoves, maps, and compasses


The Sunnywood Project is passionate about empowering young people. If you have any concerns about the costs involved in pursuing your DofE Award, please reach out for a conversation with our team.
