What is Rotary?

Rotary is a Network of Likeminded People


…. Building community spirit, unlocking the potential of young or older people and transforming the places we call home ~ That’s what we do.


Rotary is one of the world’s largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations,  with 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs in over 200 countries.

Supporting communities, both at home and overseas is a key part of Rotary, with thousands of members helping to support the most vulnerable people in the world.

Whether you are volunteering by helping your local community foodbank or responding to local and international disasters, there is a project or activity to suit everyone.

Being part of Rotary is more than just giving back to the community by volunteering. It is also about bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm to help it thrive, whilst making some great friends along the way.

Rotary clubs are friendly places which invite speakers from a wide range of backgrounds to share their knowledge, increasing your social and cultural understanding.

Members also share a common interest in friendship and if you visit any of our clubs around Great Britain and Ireland you will immediately feel the sense of camaraderie and fun.
