Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Posted: Sun 18 Dec 2022

We run Scotland's only independent Open Award Group. Every year we bring together 20 young people from all over Inverness & surrounding areas. How do we do it? It's all down to our fabulous volunteers who give up so much of their free time to support the group, coupled with our Ten Principles.

Thanks to generous support from the Silverhill Trust, every year we can offer ten fully funded scholarships for our programme. You’ll meet folk from other schools, or who are maybe already at college or in work. For the expeditions, our ethos is low cost and local, so they’re done either on foot using the local trains & buses as a way to get into the hills. Either way the focus is on you as a young adult coming along and doing your best with our support. We have excellent relationships with local volunteering organisations including Clachnacuddin Football Club and Merkinch Local Nature Reserve.
