About DofE Shopping

Win. Buy. Save…for doing your DofE

We are the world’s leading achievement award for young people. We are also a Charity, and our aim is for to enable every young person from all backgrounds and circumstances to do their DofE.


To enable us to do this we need to generate extra revenue. Currently it costs us an extra £21 for every new young person who is registered to do their DofE Award. With 250,000 new starters every year – you can see how that cost stacks up.

There are a number of initiatives, including the DofE shopping website, that provide us with an income to help offset some of this cost.  By working with carefully selected partners we are able to offer the DofE network products and discounts which when purchased will generate a donation to the DofE Charity:

  • DofE shopping website – a great range of discounts for you, your family and school plus your chance to win in a free prize draw. From tech to travel from driving to days out.
  • DofE Recommended Kit – outdoor products from our partners that have been tried and tested by the DofE for use on expedition.
  • DofE Reward Card –   The DofE Reward card gives all participants a 15% discount, and Leaders and adult volunteers 20%,  at Cotswold Outdoor in store and online.
  • Official DofE Clothing – DofE branded clothing that can be personalised to you and your group or school. Choose from the DofE Casual, Outdoor and Achievers range (exclusive to Award holders only).

Whether you are a participant, parent or carer, Leader, Manager, Assessor or volunteer, you and your family can take advantage of these offers and products.  If you are looking to buy something we have on offer we hope that you will buy via the DofE shopping website. Every time you purchase we receive a small amount of money – which goes towards more young people doing their DofE.
