Young people taking part in the DofE get involved in physical activities, learn new skills, volunteer to help others and, of course, embark on a challenging and rewarding expedition. It can be life-changing, laying strong foundations for a positive and successful future.
Legal & General has strengthened its support for the DofE in Wales to help the charity extend its work across the country and to provide opportunities for more disadvantaged young people to take part and achieve their Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards. Our support amounts to the biggest single corporate annual donation the DofE has ever received in Wales.
The charity works hard to help young people aged between 14 and 25 develop skills they may not learn in the classroom and its efforts have continued to provide structure and positive goals for participants throughout the Covid-19 crisis. We have 1,800 colleagues working in Cardiff and our support will have a particular focus on Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Cardiff and Caerphilly, where many of our people live.
