Core Value Statement

The VisionCircle philosophy revolves around the following core principles and values:

  • Achievement of personal fulfilment by helping other people achieve theirs;
  • Involvement and membership of the VisionCircle and any of its activities or bodies assumes acceptance and respect of the equality of all people irrespective of their religion, culture, socio-economic background, age, gender, sexual preference, education or political persuasion;
  • The VisionCircle concept is about furthering individual and social wellbeing and engendering harmony between people. It is never to be used as a vehicle for political, sectarian or religious causes to the detriment of others;
  • The firm belief in the principle that 'what goes around, comes around';
  • The firm belief that the power of many focused on specific issues or challenges can make a bigger difference than many people working independently;
  • Members of every VisionCircle will always respect, abide by, and uphold the laws of the country in which they are situated;
  • No fee may be charged for membership in a VisionCircle nor contract or agreement for membership to be signed. Membership is always based on goodwill, mutual respect, trust and tolerance;
  • Any member may leave the VisionCircle at any time for any reason with no barrier or hindrance provided by other VisionCircle members or the VisionCircle organisation.
