Badges and Awards
Once I've Finished...

What happens when an award has been completed?

Bronze and Silver

1. Send the completed book to the County Advisers. 7 Windsor Grove, Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancs., OL6 8UU., who will check that the requirements have been met.

2. They will sign the book/pack and issue a certificate, a cloth badge and a metal pin badge.

If you want to see where the badge goes on the uniform see here. Scout D of E badge

3. The certificate, badges and book/pack will be returned to the Leader for presentation. This may vary from District to District . However the County holds a presentation evening at least once a year when D of E awards are presented along with the Platinum, Diamond and Queens Scouts Awards which we would be delighted if you attended.

Additionally for those groups in the Stockport MBC area there is a dedicated D of E award night held annually early in the year which is organised by the local authority welcome Scouts.


1. Send the completed book/pack to the Advisers who will check the requirements have been met

2. At the same time you also need to included a “Gold Award Notification Form” (this can be downloaded here or from D of E website)

3. The Advisers will send the completed book/pack to the D of E office at Gilwell for approval.


4. If everything is OK the book/pack is then forwarded to the D of E national headquarters in Windsor.

5. When the Award is approved by them they will send the book back to Gilwell for return to the County Advisers. Depending on the volume waiting for approval this can often take some time.

You should not make definite plans for presentations until the award is confirmed.

6. The book will be returned to the Advisers and a metal badge will be sent to the County Commissioner for presentation. Again if you want the cloth Scout badge you should ask your badge secretary

7. You can now make arrangements for the badge to be presented. The D of E will write directly to the recipient with details about attendance at Gold presentation at St James’ Palace. This is an awesome occasion and a very special day for them following all their hard work.
