WHAT WE DO

Youth Programmes

Rotary’s programmes can change lives and young people can earn scholarships, travel on cultural exchanges, or help a community through a service project. We encourage all family members to take part to help young people to develop personal skills, supported by Rotarians.

Our Work

We support and work in partnership with a wide range of businesses, charities and projects at a local and national level. By combining our skills, time and resources, we are able to successfully deliver local and national campaigns which have a positive impact on our communities.
