Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

New County Lead D of E Adviser  for Norfolk

I am delighted to announce that Peter Allen will be joining the Programme Workstream of the County Team as our new lead Duke of Edinburgh Award. 

Peter has several years experience in Scouting and has previously supported the Duke of Edinburgh scheme both internally and externally to the movement. He is currently a volunteer with the 16th Norwich Scouts. 

He is keen to get involved to continue supporting the good practice already demonstrated and direct more districts to be able to offer the provision as well as our own ‘top awards’. 

Having had a small break from Duke of Edinburgh, Peter is currently coming up-to-speed and so will commence his role from 21 January 2019. 

Peter’s email address is 

I am sure you will join me in wishing Peter well in his new challenge, contributing toward our goal of 1,700 top awards achieved in Norfolk each year by 2023. 


Matthew Burrell, County Commissioner (Norfolk)
