The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
Are you completing your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award?
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) provides a balanced programme of activities for participants aged between 14-24, giving young people the opportunity to develop skills for life and work through team working and social interaction.
Revitalise is an Approved Activity Provider for the DofE, welcoming volunteers who are completing the residential placement of their Gold DofE Award.
We work hard to provide a holiday environment that is very different to traditional respite breaks. You will play a vital role in this, by supporting our guests and ensuring that they have a great holiday. As a residential volunteer there will be plenty of socialising too, as you will be providing companionship and practical help on excursions and activities.
While your DofE residential placement only needs to be for 4 nights; the minimum stay for residential volunteers with Revitalise is 7 nights, starting on Saturdays. The minimum age to volunteer with Revitalise is 16.
Revitalise placements are FREE – We reimburse up to £60 in travel expenses and your meals and accommodation are provided.
Please note – volunteering with Revitalise will not count as a residential DofE placement if you are volunteering as part of a school or college group.
If you do attend with a school or college group and enjoy the experience, we welcome you to return to complete your DofE residential placement with Revitalise.
