Teambuilding icebreakers

Whether you’re running a youth group, working in a school or adult training environment, there’s always a place for some games and activities to help people get to know each other. Try these in your group - and help even the most shy and reserved individual come out of their shell.

Welcome Packs

The price of a Welcome Pack, which includes a DofE Participation Place, will increase from 1 April to £22 (Bronze), £22 (Silver) and £29 (Gold). If you charge more than this, you must tell participants of any additional costs and what they cover. We have held this increase down to £1 due to generous fundraising supporters; income from Commercial partners; the growing number of fee-paying Licensed Organisations and participants and the efforts of our volunteer network.
