This is a snippet from a DofE Expedition consent form.

Since consent is only of any value if it's informed consent, expedition supervisors need to be up front about what's involved.

This is a snippet that can be included in a standard consent form. You can select the text and copy and paste it into a Word (or similar) document.

This is a two-page generic DofE expedition risk assessment.

An over-complicated risk assessment ceases to be a valuable tool when people stop reading it.

I've included only those risks that seem to me to be likely to cause harm. Please add to or amend as you see fit for the expeditions that you run.
