Membership Information

We are often asked who the Lions are and what do we do.


Lions are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes throughout the British Isles. Globally we have more volunteers in more places than any other service club organisation, and love to step forward to volunteer, help others and make things happen.

Wherever you live, work or travel across the British Isles, you are likely to come across members of Lions Clubs and the projects we support.

We’d love you to join us.


If you’re interested in helping your local community, volunteering, fund-raising, organising projects, using your talents, gaining new skills, making friends and having fun – you can do all of this and more as a Lions Club member.
