Amey is a founding member of the Duke of Edinburgh’s strategic partnership programme, which since 2014 has enabled almost 3.5m young people to start their DofE journey and develop the confidence, resilience and team-working skills required to lead a successful career and fulfilled life beyond the workplace.
Amey’s original partnership with DofE began much earlier in 2002, and as part of its broader approach to social value and community investment, Amey has enabled over 500 apprentices to undertake the Duke of Edinburgh’s programme, helping address skills shortages across the UK and invest in the communities in which Amey delivers services.
According to the charity’s data, Amey’s financial donations in the last year have made it possible for 7000 young people across the UK to contribute over 69,000 volunteering hours and the equivalent of £280,000 to local communities. The partnership has meanwhile delivered 136,299 volunteering hours and £545,195 back to communities across the UK and overseas.
