Get Involved

There are several ways in which you can get involved with Swanage & Purbeck Rotary. Read on to find out more.

Individual Membership

Whether you are still working, semi-retired or fully retired, if you can spare some time to help make a difference to the local community, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re keen for you to get as involved as much as you feel able to commit to, whether that’s helping our Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) to run an event or a Community Programme, helping with marshalling activities or in any other way.

Individual Membership currently costs £120 per annum, part of which goes towards the cost of insurance and the running of the group.

Associate Membership

If you can’t afford the time to join Swanage & Purbeck Rotary as a full member of the group, but you still want to support us and help make a difference in the local community as and when you can, that’s what our Associate Membership is all about.

There is no charge for the first year, which offers a “try before you buy” opportunity to see what Rotary is all about, and if you take part in any of the events run by the CIO, you will automatically be covered under its insurance arrangements.

Friends of Rotary

If you would simply like to volunteer to help our CIO at events as and when you can, but you don’t wish to join as either an Individual or Associate Member of the group, we would be delighted to have your help.

Many people would like to be involved with Rotary without becoming a formal member of the group, choosing to be instead a “Friend”. We rely heavily on our “Friends” for assistance with our varied programme – including the CIO’s events ranging from the annual Summer Fete and Santa Sleigh to the very popular Young Musician competition and Silver Saturday. You can read our quarterly Friends newsletter here.
