Norman "Duke" Wellington is a care-worker and also the Dumping Ground's chef and gardener from season 1 to 4. In season 5 he went off on a holiday to the Caribbean which he never returned from. He is loved by all the kids and the other careworkers.

Duke has faced some hostility towards his size. However once confronted by the children of The Dumping Ground, accepts that he is who he is, and loved by those around.

He shared several emotional moments with the likes of Tracy and her friends. Like the rest of the staff, he maintains a disliking aura toward Elaine the Pain.
