Our national and global partnerships allow us to maximise our impact.

Working together to achieve more.


National Partners

Rochester Bridge Trust

Rotary and Rochester Bridge Trust are working together to expand the reach of the Technology Tournament, an exciting Rotary Youth Competition which puts children’s science and engineering skills to the test.

Rochester Bridge Trust has looked after the crossing in Rochester since medieval times and is encouraging young people to learn more about civil engineering and bridge building.


WheelPower and Rotary have developed a strong relationship devoted to helping people to achieve all they can and to understand that a wheelchair is not a barrier to success.

WheelPower supports Rotary through guest speakers, expert advice regarding disabilities and sports and will help with events related to disabled sports. The knowledge offered by WheelPower can help Rotary clubs further understand and meet the needs of people in communities.

Royal Horticultural Society

Our partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society has allowed Rotary clubs to join forces with their community-based Bloom and work in tandem to bring people together, transform public spaces to brighten up the local area and promote health and wellbeing by planting millions of crocus corms.

The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, with its colour representing the purple dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised.


Global Partners


Rotary is a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. With help from our partners, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF, we’ve made the world 99.9% polio-free.

Disaster Relief

Rotary and ShelterBox collaborate to provide emergency shelter and vital supplies to stabilise, protect, and support communities affected by disasters and humanitarian crises.
