Welcome to the Discovery Award

This is the official website of the Discovery Award for the UK, which incorporates The Discovery Award in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, all of which make up The Discovery Award Federation.

The Discovery Award is an achievement Award for all people 50 or over, regardless of personal capabilities or ethnic origin.

What are the main aims of The Discovery Award?

The Award is aimed at all people over 50 years of age, to help promote an active and healthy lifestyle by offering challenges to both stimulate and motivate.

The Discovery Award is a personal challenge, through a programme of your chosen leisure activities with no exam at the end. You need no special qualifications, just a willingness to have a go and the determination to do the very best that you personally achieve.

For more information please see The Award Programme page.

If you have any queries about whether or not you should join us, please contact us and ask. The only criterion is that you are 50 years of age or more.
