What is Rotary?

Our members are men and women of all ages who come from many walks of life

(just like you!) whether business people,

professional people or community leaders alike we have a common bond: we are keen to utilise our skills and resources to help others.

With 34,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographic regions worldwide, boasting 1.2 Million members, Rotary is far reaching. In Great Britain & Ireland alone, there are in excess of 51,000 Rotarians in 1,810 Clubs. Each member enjoys the opportunity to give something back to communities at home and abroad, learn new skills, expand their social network and have a huge amount of fun in the process.

Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects locally, nationally and internationally and also partners with many charities worldwide. Members initiate projects which address the needs of their local communities such as running food banks or fundraising for their local children's hospice.

Rotary Clubs are autonomous and determine service projects based on local needs. By combining their skills and resources, our members are able to make a real contribution to the lives of others.

What we do

Members volunteer their time to serve the local community, through activities such as supporting community events, running educational programmes, supporting local businesses or helping out at music festivals, fun runs and marathons.

They organise national competitions in music, cookery, photography, public speaking and citizenship to help young people improve their skills.

Because of Rotary's vast international geographic spread, we are in the unique position to be able to reach people in need all over the world, from running life changing projects in developing countries to making an immediate response to disaster hit regions.

Rotary has it's own charity, The Rotary Foundation, which funds the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty throughout the world.

In local communities

Rotary Clubs carry out a range of different activities and projects which aim to help improve the quality of life in their local communities

Projects include:

  • Kids Out day - an annual day out for disadvantaged children
  • Assisting at music festivals, concerts and fetes
  • Youth projects - encouraging young people's talents and opportunities
  • Supporting foodbanks
  • Sponsored bike rides and races
  • Christmas collections
  • Support for local residential homes - for the elderly or disabled
  • Support for schools - with mock interviews and business days
  • Volunteering alongside local charities
  • Support for hospices

Polio eradication

The crippling and sometimes fatal disease of polio is still a very harrowing reality for children in parts of Africa and Asia and threatens children everywhere.

Rotary has made polio eradication its top priority since 1985 and every pound Rotary raises becomes £3 with generous support by Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. To date around US$1 Billion has been raised.
