Working for the good of everyone in Norfolk

As the appointed representative of His Majesty the King in Norfolk, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to our website. I hope you will find here all the information you need to know about the work of the Lieutenancy in support of His Majesty.

Our aim is to serve you and your community in the best way that we can, in particular encouraging volunteering and promoting mental health fitness especially amongst young people and those in our rural sector.

We welcome suggestions from interested parties about how the Lieutenancy can connect more fully with the life of the county, whether that be celebrating success or raising awareness of deprivation and other difficult issues.

To find out more about arranging a visit by either myself or one of my Deputies, to make a nomination for an Honour or Award, or to learn more about the work of the Lieutenancy throughout the county, please see below.

It is a privilege to support the wonderful Norfolk charities and organisations that tirelessly endeavour to help those in need, and to highlight the extraordinary amount of good that is being done within this quite amazing county of ours.

Lady Dannatt MBE, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk

What is the Norfolk Lieutenancy?

The Norfolk Lieutenancy represents the Crown’s lifelong commitment to the wellbeing of the entire community.

It offers active support to the voluntary, commercial, social and spiritual lives of its citizens, also aiming to:

Respond when approached
Assist when invited
Improve where possible
Sustain where necessary
Encourage where practicable

and in all its actions to maintain the dignity of the Crown and to consider the interests of the whole of Norfolk.

Your Lieutenancy

His Majesty the King appoints a Lord-Lieutenant as his representative in each lieutenancy area of the United Kingdom.

The Lord-Lieutenant for Norfolk is The Lady Dannatt MBE, who was appointed on 5 August 2019 and will remain in office until the age of 75. The role is non-political and unpaid.

Attending Royal Garden Parties

Every year Royal Garden Parties are held at Buckingham Palace.

If you feel that someone in Norfolk has made a major contribution to life in the community, or has provided exceptional service in any other way, you could recommend that they be invited to one.

Note it is not possible to self-nominate for a garden party. Nominees and their guests should not have previously attended a Garden Party.
