Hampshire DofE Forum

There are a number of Local DofE Committees (LDCs) across the County where meetings are held in order to pass on information from Hampshire and DofE nationally. They welcome all and work as an open forum to share and discuss good practice in DofE Centres. It is the LDCs that organise the annual district presentations for Bronze and Silver award holders to receive their Certificates.
