Open DofE Centre

The Open DofE Centre is a place where you can do your Duke of Edinburgh’s Award if you can’t do it at school or at college. Our Open Award Centre is based at Ham Youth Centre, Ham Close, Ham, Richmond TW10 7PL.


If you’re after a Bronze programme, you should first sign up with your school or college. If your school or college does not offer the Bronze DofE, you can sign up with the Virtual Centre.
