We are project partners with Rotary International, a global community of 1.2 million neighbours, friends and community leaders. Their aim is to create positive, lasting change in communities at home and all over the world.
By working together with Rotary, we are able to collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support more communities in desperate need of shelter.
Rotarians and Rotary groups across the world support us in a variety of ways, from raising funds to providing support on the ground during our response to a disaster.
This enables us to cross boundaries and work together to reach even the most remote communities.
An ongoing partnership
ShelterBox and Rotary are celebrating another three years of Partnership. ShelterBox has been Rotary's Project Partner in Disaster Relief since 2012, but the relationship had been long-standing.
For almost 20 years, this unique humanitarian alliance has supported families with a place to call home after disaster. What began as a local connection with one Cornish Rotary Club has led to an international movement that’s raised over £54 million for ShelterBox to date.
But the partnership extends far beyond financial support. Around 1,000 Rotary members are involved in ShelterBox as volunteers, staff or response team members. Rotary clubs worldwide offer valuable, practical assistance to help ShelterBox reach more families fleeing disaster or conflict.
On the ground
At any given time ShelterBox Response Teams are on the ground, supporting families to recover after disaster and conflict all over the world. Rotary is with us every step of the way.
From raising funds to practical support on the ground during our response to a disaster, Rotary is helping us to reach families in desperate need.

Partnership in action
By working together with Rotary, we are able to collaborate and combine resources to ensure that we can support even more families in need of shelter.
This partnership has made a world of difference in a number of different responses.

An exciting new development in our partnership is the creation of a new operations base in the Philippines. This in-country office was created by working closely with Rotary groups, and will allow us to get vital emergency shelter to vulnerable families even quicker.
ShelterBox has responded to disasters in the Philippines 25 times and we have worked together with Rotary in every response. Collaborating with Rotary to create ShelterBox Operations Philippines was a natural next step.
