Supporting the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme

The government has announced a £3.4 million investment to expand The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in schools, supporting pupils in deprived schools in England to take part in volunteering and extra-curricular learning as part of the plans to level up across the country.

  • The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is synonymous with service and personal achievement, supporting young people to build resilience, perseverance and discipline.

  • That is why the government is expanding the Award into more schools with more pupils from the most deprived areas of England able to start the Award thanks to this £3.4 million funding boost going to up to 291 more schools, meaning more young people will be able to access volunteering and extra-curricular learning.

  • This fitting tribute to the extraordinary life and achievements of HRH the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, is supporting more young people to develop skills and abilities while making a difference to society as we level up opportunity across the country.
