The Awards Benevolence Program (ABP) provides financial assistance for ‘disadvantaged or marginalised’ youth (aged 10-24)

The ABP exists through generous donations and fundraising efforts that endeavour to ensure that every young Victorian who wants to be involved in an Award, can be. Currently, federal funding for The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is made available to assist disadvantaged or marginalised youth with costs incurred as a result of participation in the Award, including participant fees.
