Girlguiding continues to offer members aged 14-25 the opportunity to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Awards. For more information about the Duke of Edinburgh's Award please see To register for DofE Award the form is available here

In 2017, Girlguiding Leicestershire will be offering Bronze & Silver DofE expeditions on foot. Our Gold canoeing expedition is now full, but Gold Walking expeditions are still available via Midlands Region.

For any queries about DofE, please contact Lucy Faulds 

Anyone wishing to undertake a Bronze DofE expedition with Girlguiding Leicestershire this year must complete training in a number of key areas. The easiest and most efficient way to complete this is by attending the Basic Expedition Training Weekend.


Silver Expedition Practice & Qualifying:-

We appreciate that bank holiday weekends are not ideal for all participants, however taking into account the exam season and our Supervisor and Assessor availability these are the only dates possible in 2017. If you are not able to attend these dates, we may be able to link you with a group from a neighbouring county. Anyone who has not completed bronze will need to attend the Basic Expedition Training Weekend from 17th - 19th March at Thurnby Scout & Guide HQ. 

For more information, please contact Lucy Faulds
