Rotary South East (UK) & Gibraltar

“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

76 Rotary Clubs - All Making A Difference

We have 76 great Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 1120; stretching from the South East of London, along the Kent and Sussex coasts and also including Gibraltar. We are 2,000 men and women; all having fun whilst serving our communities and making a difference worldwide.

What We Do

We like to meet people, socialise and have fun together whilst doing good in the world. 

We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues. We raise funds and manage projects both locally in our own communities and also overseas to promote peace, alleviate poverty, support education, fight disease, provide clean water and address poor sanitation. 

Since the mid eighties Rotary, together with the World Health Organisation and other partners, has also been at the forefront of the battle to eradicate polio from the world.

Rotary At The Heart of Your Community

"Rotarians are ordinary people who go that extra mile to help other people and in the process widen their circle of friends and enhance their social life"

Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things Together

Looking for a new opportunity?

Rotary is not just a club that you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. Rotary opens opportunities for you to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree. ... Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.

If you think Rotary could be for you we would love to hear from you soon. Just email membership@rotarysoutheast.org.

We're Rotary

We see opportunities where others see obstacles. We're change makers and problem solvers. We continue to provide access to clean water, tackle global heath concerns, support education and build the foundations for peace across borders. We're Rotary and there's no limit to what we can do.
