Meet our Regional Coordinators

In March 2018 we created a Public Engagement Network within the UK to increase public knowledge of our work. We currently have one full-time and six part-time Public Engagement Coordinators (PECs) who each cover an area of England, Scotland and Wales.

The PECs are responsible for all forms of engagement in the UK with the aim of raising awareness of the work of the Commonwealth War Graves on a local and global level. Their work includes, but is not limited to, presentations and workshops tailored to all ages, cemetery tours, representing the Commission at events, both local and national, building and maintaining networks with their regions and managing volunteers.

The name of your local PEC is listed below and will be the contact you need to find out more about what we can offer in your local community. Please email: to be passed on to your local coordinator.
