2018 Citizen of the Year Award Winners


Peter Allen






Peter has demonstrated his willingness to serve the community since joining Rotary in June, 1971. He was President in 1984 and has served on the many Committees in Rotary over the years.

During the past 11 years, he has been very active in working with the regional Domestic Violence Service which covers Campbelltown and almost a quarter of metropolitan Adelaide. His continuing efforts to assist survivors of domestic and family violence in rebuilding their lives, together with his involvement in Rotary and the Rotary Shed is the basis for this nomination. Peter’s community work with the Eastern Adelaide Domestic Violence Service is outstanding and continues to maintain the existing partnership with the Rotary Club of Campbelltown.

Peter’s connection with both services highlights the importance of community connection, building community capacity and best practice when growing partnership opportunities between Service Clubs and Non-Government Organisations. His positive influence has been a conduit in the building of relationships between the two organisations which has ultimately resulted in better outcomes and benefits for the most disadvantaged within our Community.
