Rotary in The South West Peninsula: Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly 

Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1175. Rotarians in the District actively embrace and exemplify the two main themes of Rotary International, namely “Service above Self” and “We’re for Communities”, and are active in their local communities and in overseas projects, providing support, assistance, advice, and guidance to the clubs and communities both in actively practical and financial terms. Many of these various projects are featured elsewhere in this website whilst others are undertaken without fuss or publicity by the individual clubs.


Rotary International welcomes as members of its various clubs any person of good standing regardless of gender, ethnicity, beliefs or politics. With its range of cultures and environments there is a choice of clubs within the District to suit most people within easy travelling distance of where they live. Accessing the various club websites will give you a flavour of what there is on offer and contact with the individual clubs is easy and without any obligation to commit at this stage. Should you need help in finding a suitable club then email join@rotarysw.info and our Chair of Membership will be pleased to help you.
Rotarians save lives, change lives and give hope. 12 Reasons to Join Us

“The question is no longer, “How many children are there and where might we go to find the mall?” It is now, “How do we most efficiently vaccinate every child on this map?”

Innovations like this are a key reason for our optimism. But innovation has no moral valence by itself. It is not inherently good or bad, just irresistibly transformative. To make sure innovation transforms our world in positive ways, human beings need to point it in the right direction. That takes “public will.”

Many organizations helped push the eradication resolution through the World Health Assembly, but the one you wouldn’t expect is Rotary International. Rotary is a service organization with 1.2 million members in almost every country in the world, including more than 50,000 in Great Britain and Ireland.

Rotarians pledge to put service above self, their motto, but they have no specific global health mandate. They are not polio experts. They are regular people who go to work and spend time with their families. For three decades, they have also spent time advocating for polio eradication, raising money to support vaccination, and giving kids polio drops all over the world.

Other partners include the Centres for Disease Control, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization. We rely on them to excel at their jobs. But that is not enough. We also need people whose jobs have nothing to do with the health of poor people to act. That is public will.”
