We are so proud of our links to the HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh and the young people who are able to achieve so much through the DofE Award Scheme.
The Award Scheme North East office quotes
‘It is with great sadness that The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) in the North of England acknowledges the death of Founder and Patron, HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
Sixty-five years ago, HRH Prince Philip established The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The DofE has become one of The Duke’s most remarkable achievements and is woven into the fabric of the UK, equipping and empowering young people from all communities to build the skills, confidence, and resilience they need to make the most out of life and make a difference to the world around them.
The DofE is widely established throughout the North of England. Last year 60,164 young people started their programmes in the area and 31,845 Awards were achieved.’
We will continue this amazing legacy as long as we possibly can. We will all be paying our respects to the HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at the TCR Hub this weekend. Rest in Peace.
