Rotary International is a worldwide association of business and professional people dedicated both to serving others and to encouraging high ethical standards in business. For over 100 years it has been delivering individual and corporate social responsibility around the world through a network of Clubs in which the development of friendship stimulates and encourages involvement in fund-raising and personal service and the business networking opportunities not only promote business but enable more funds and in-kind support to be raised for the many local and international good causes that so much need our help.

Rotary is a worldwide family made up of over 1.2 million members in 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas. In Great Britain and Ireland there are some 53,000 members - men and women of all ages and backgrounds - in some 1,850 clubs.

Wherever in the world there is a problem, a need, a disaster or an opportunity you will find a local Rotary Club that can ensure the support that is provided from clubs many thousands of miles away is properly used.

The motto of Rotary is "Service above Self". If you want to make a difference and give something back, then Rotary is for you and you'll find that by joining such a large and supportive worldwide family you can make much more of a difference than you thought possible.
