What Is Rotary?

Rotary International is a worldwide organisation comprising more than 33,000 individual Rotary Clubs. In the United Kingdom and Ireland there are around 1750 clubs with over 50,000 members. The common aim of all Rotarians is to help improve their communities whilst applying the Rotary moto of “Service Above Self”.

Rotary International supports programmes throughout the world to reduce poverty, disease and poor living conditions. Each Rotary Club contributes to some of the worldwide projects but the main emphasis is on improvement of the local community. Projects include organising and supervising community events, promoting the achievements of young people, helping those who are disadvantaged or disabled, coordinating educational programmes and working in partnership with local businesses and charities.

Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
