A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover new interests and talents.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life. Over 300,000 young people per year from every possible background take part in DofE programmes to broaden their horizons, develop their leadership skills, learn to work with others, volunteer in their local communities, increase their employability, and prove to themselves they can succeed at a serious challenge.

With The Sunnywood Project, you can be one of them!







A proud DofE Licensed Organisation, The Sunnywood Project promotes a love of the great outdoors through a variety of events, conservation and educational programmes stimulating a mentally and physically healthy lifestyle for those living in Bury, Greater Manchester, and Rossendale.


With a host of passionate and empathetic DofE Leaders and Helpers from a range of backgrounds and with a wealth of outdoor expertise, The Sunnywood Project is uniquely positioned to offer the DofE Award to the young people of our communities, especially those who might otherwise struggle to access the rewarding opportunities it presents.
