About Rotary

Rotary is short for Rotary International a worldwide network of inspired professional business men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to change lives in communities.


It’s the world’s largest service organisation for business and professional people, with some 1,180,000 members operating in 200 countries world-wide.
There are over 53,000 Rotarians in Great Britain and Ireland in 1,850 clubs, each club being a complete, independent unit within the association, subject only to the Standard Club Constitution, helping those in need and working towards world understanding and peace. It’s a fulfilling role, and Rotarians can get involved as much or as little as their time will allow.

However, there is much more. Clubs meet on a regular basis, which allows members to build firm friendships. Every Rotarian has a right to attend any Club meeting anywhere in the world, so there is always somewhere to go, and people to meet, wherever business or leisure travel may take you.

Rotary clubs depend on the skills, expertise and dedication of their members, who work hard to change the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.
