National DofE products

DofE Shop

The County DofE office holds the stock of the majority of these items and we can sell in smaller units and if sent via the courier, we will not charge postage and packing.

Please email with your orders.

Alternatively you can setup an account with Award Scheme Ltd. (ASL) if you purchase on a regular basis.

Expedition Assessor Networks

Assessing is also a great way to volunteer. For DofE Assessors (who now must hold a National Assessor ID card) there are a number of Assessor Networks whereby you can offer your services to certain Expedition areas.

The following Networks operate in the Hampshire area:
