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.”

72 Clubs Making A Difference

We have 72 great Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 1120; stretching from South East London, along the Kent and Sussex coasts and also including Gibraltar. We are 1,800 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.

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 or in a small community project where you plant a tree to help the environment. 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.

Supporting The Environment

Supporting the Environment has become Rotary's 7th Area of Focus.

Supporting The Environment

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

Polio Latest

End Polio Now

Updated 28th May 2024

Our flagship project of Polio eradication continues with only two Polio endemic countries Pakistan and Afghanistan. The head line figurers year to date are:

Afghanistan 3 new cases in 2024 (6 cases in 2023)
Pakistan 2 new case in 2024 (6 cases in 2023)

Wild poliovirus is still circulating in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Last year, the variant poliovirus was detected in a few previously polio-free countries — a stark reminder that if polio exists anywhere, it’s a threat everywhere.

The concern with natural disasters and ongoing conflicts in many parts of the world is that immunisation rates are dropping. Cases of Vaccine Derived Polio are quickly jumped on with targeted vaccinations but the only answer is total eradication and we are so close. The development of novel vaccines using the technology developed in COVID now stops the transmission of Vaccine derived cases. Please support End Polio Now Five Key Facts On Polio:

1. Polio mainly affects children under age 5.
2. There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.
3. Only two countries continue to show new cases of wild polio virus  
4. We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.
5. Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.

The fight continues ....
