Young people’s mental health & wellbeing

Every year, the DofE helps thousands of 14 to 24-year-olds to thrive., supporting their positive mental health and wellbeing. New research, produced with the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), evidences how, and demonstrates that doing DofE:

  • Builds resilience, confidence and supports general wellbeing
  • Encourages connection with new people, physical fitness and skills development
  • Provides opportunities to step out of comfort zones

Before I did DofE, I felt anxious a lot of the time. I believe in myself more now. (DofE participant)

The ability for young people to bounce back and give themselves the best opportunities in life is more important than ever.
