About Westhill Open Award Group

We are a volunteer group registered with Aberdeenshire Council meeting in Westhill Community Centre to train and support Duke of Edinburgh’s. Award participants aged 14-24 from our local area.

All leaders are enthusiastic about the outdoors and have a desire to encourage the next generation to enjoy the hills in a safe and appropriate manner.  Having registered with the group and Aberdeenshire council, the leaders require to have certain mandatory training along with appropriate training for the type of countryside in which they will be supervising groups.

We are here to support the participants as they complete their award to whichever level  they decide to achieve and so if there are any questions from our teams, their parents or any DOE participants in the area that require support to complete, please get in touch.

If you enjoy the outdoors and would like to volunteer with the group please get in touch

We treat the privacy of participants, volunteers and site visitors very seriously. For details of our privacy policy, please see our Privacy Policy page.
