Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1010.
Rotary is where neighbours, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change.
Geographically, our district stretches from the northern shores of the Firth of Forth, to the Shetland Isles in the North, and the Hebrides in the West. We have 90 Rotary Clubs with around 3000 Rotarian members. Every single area of our district has something to offer. From the green valleys and fertile fields of the south, up through the old fishing towns along the east coast and in the Highlands with their serene lochs and majestic peaks, their quiet glens and sparkling rivers where salmon abounds you will find some beautiful scenery.
Being part of Rotary is more than just giving back to the community by volunteering. It is also about you bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm to help it thrive, whilst making some great friends along the way. Our clubs are friendly places and if you visit any of our clubs in our district you will immediately feel the sense of camaraderie and fun.
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. We strive to: promote peace; fight disease; provide clean water; support education; save mothers and children; and grow local economies.
In addition, we offer several programmes for young people. In our Primary Schools we offer RotaKids and in Secondary Schools we offer Interact. People aged 18 to 30 might like to join Rotaract. We also offer competitions for young people as well as the opportunity to visit other countries to explore new cultures.
