The DofE and their Partners

The DofE is a national charity, with over 450,000 young people (14 -24 years), from all backgrounds, getting involved to broaden their horizons, develop leadership skills, volunteer in their communities and increase their employability to maximise their potential in life.

The DofE needs to generate an extra £22 for every young person who embarks on their DofE journey. To do this the DofE work with partners on a number of initiatives to generate income, which includes DofE Clothing.

Every purchase of Official DofE Clothing enables the DofE to keep costs down, allowing more young people from diverse backgrounds to do their DofE.
