What Award badges are there?

When you achieve your Bronze or Silver Award you will be given a DofE badge by your OA/centre. At Gold you can choose between a badge or a brooch, which comes in a velvet pouch – you can view them here. Many uniformed organisations have their own cloth badges which you will also be presented with locally.

How do I receive my certificates for Bronze, Silver and Gold?

  1. Bronze and Silver: When you achieve your DofE Award you will be given a DofE badge and certificate from your OA or centre.
  2. Gold: When you achieve your Gold Award you will receive the badge or brooch from your OA or centre. You will then be invited to a presentation at one of the Royal palaces to receive your certificate. Please note this takes around 8-12 months at present.

What do I do if I have a lost or damaged badge and/or certificate?

You must apply to your OA for any replacement of Bronze and Silver badges and certificates. Your DofE Leader may do this for you.

Your DofE Regional/Country Office will deal with any Gold badge or certificate replacements, for which there is a small charge. You will have to provide evidence you hold a Gold Award.
