What is Rotary?

Men and Women of all ages who are

business and professional people or

community leaders, keen to utilise their

skills and resources to help others.


With 34,000 Rotary Clubs in 200

countries across the world, boasting

1.2 million Members, Rotary is far

reaching. In Great Britain and Ireland

alone, there are more than 51,000

Rotarians in 1,810 Clubs. Each Member

enjoys the opportunity to give something

back to communities at home and

abroad, learning 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 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.

What Rotarians do
By combining their skills and resources,

each Rotarian is able to make a real

contribution to the lives of others.


Rotary is a huge business networking

opportunity. Members come from all

walks of life, and work together to the

benefit of Members and the community.

They volunteer their time to serve their

local communities through activities

such as supporting community events,

running educational programmes,

supporting local businesses or helping

out at music festivals and marathons.


Rotarians organise national

competitions in music, cookery,

photography, public speaking and

citizenship to help young people

improve their skills

In local communities

Rotary groups carry out a range of

different activities and projects which

aim to improve quality of life in their

local communities.
