Welcome to the Rotary Club of Hampton!


Our Club was chartered in October 1995 and, since then, has been working continually, with our partners and friends, to make a difference in the local and global community. We are progressive, inclusive and innovative in our approach to creating positive social change, while having fun, expanding our networks, developing new friendships and pursuing personal development. We are a well-regarded, active community oriented Bayside service club.

Individual members have plenty of opportunity to propose projects to support, to get involved in a range of activities and challenges whilst making new friends and enjoying the Rotary fellowship that comes with participating at local, interstate and international conference levels.

All our activities reflect the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” whilst concentrating on the Rotary Five Avenues of Service:

Community Service (local)
Club Service
Vocational Service
International Service

Some of our activities include:

  • Fundraising and volunteering at our monthly Bayside Farmers’ Market. This major community event, held on the 4th Saturday of every month, has generated proceeds from the entry donations, which the Rotary Club of Hampton has been able to “give back” to the local community. Many organisations have benefited directly, including local sporting and youth groups, local schools and hospitals and a range of community groups.
  • Supporting youth development and leadership through collaborations with local primary schools, awards for Resilience, as well as the annual Friendship awards.
  • In partnership with the Rotary Club of Brighton North (from District 9800) the roll-out of Mental Health First Aid courses in two areas; one targetting adults who work with youth, such as school staff, parents, sports coaches, community group leaders, youth leaders, police: the other for high school students in years 7-9 and years 10-12 to help them provide support and mental health first aid to their friends.
  • Developing a program for pre-school hearing screening in the Bayside area which has assessed hundreds of children to date and referred 20-25% for further medical and diagnostic assessment. Starting in 2022, the assessment day now includes Large Motor Skills Screening as well. This program has been a partnership between Hampton Rotary Club, the Department of Audiology and Speech Pathology and, since 2022 a Physiotherapy team, from the University of Melbourne and Bayside City Council’s Family Services. We also acknowledge the generous support of the Hampton Primary School who have made their facilities available for conducting the testing.
  • Supporting the Salvation Army for many years and assisting by providing hampers and food parcels which are distributed to needy families in the local community.
  • Supporting a number of tertiary students in Fiji by providing a range of educational scholarships. In addition, volunteers have been involved in school building and maintenance programs as well.
  • Providing volunteer services and financial support for hospital projects in Timor Leste, and in Cambodia. The most recent initiative has been to source and pack a container of medical supplies from the Rotary Donations-In-Kind warehouse which was sent to a start-up women’s hospital in Nokor Tep Cambodia.
  • Sponsoring a student to attend Camp Awakenings, which is an Australian youth development program for Year Nine students focused on building support networks for the participants through friendship and trust. Participants develop and harness methods, tools and skills to counter the challenges faced by today's youth, through self-belief, self-respect, a positive attitude and motivation.
  • With help of the Rotary Club of Brighton, through the Early Intervention Federal Government Grant funding, sponsoring students from Sandringham College to attend the RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) camp. This Youth Development Program is for students aged 15-17 years old and is a great opportunity for young people to help them reach their potential, and develop skills in resilience, communication, leadership, teamwork and goal setting & more.
  • Participating in numerous programs of international aid, including Disaster Aid Australia.
  • Volunteering to improve the sustainability of the Bayside foreshore by planting hundreds of native trees in the annual Plant-A-Tree project.
  • Volunteering each month with the Hampton Beach Patrol to help keep the local beaches clean and safe.
