You don’t necessarily need to be a Rotarian to be involved in service to the community through Rotary.
Volunteering work with Rotary changes lives
Whether you are volunteering by helping your local community set up a foodbank, or responding to local disasters, there is a project or activity to suit everyone. By volunteering with Rotary, you know that you will be changing people’s lives for the better.
Volunteering through Rotary is more than just giving back to the community. It is also about you bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm for great community outcomes, whilst making some great friends along the way. Rotary clubs are friendly places where members, whether young professionals through to those who have retired, share a common interest in friendship while helping create a better community.

Some questions you may have … answered:
- Do I have the skills needed?
You do not have to be a skilled business person or amazing entrepreneur to get involved. We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways and probably learn some new skills along the way.
- What if I am short on time?
Volunteering with Rotary is easy, fun and very flexible. How much time you give is completely up to you – just match this with what you volunteer to do. You become a part of a team and we will make sure you receive any needed training and are fully supported.
- What are the benefits to me?
There is the chance to build personal skills like teamwork, confidence, leadership and other skills relevant to your personal and working life. You will become part of a project team that will be lead by a Rotarian but as defined by the scope and scale of the project the various aspects will be shared among the team.
- What are the different options of volunteering?
You can volunteer in many ways from providing some additional help to a club that may need some specialist skills through to hands-on in a project. Whether you have website building skills you can use to help a club in their promotion, are a fundraising whiz, are a skills tradesperson or have some other skill or passion there will be a place for you.
