Vision and Values

The United Grand Lodge of England has published its Vision, Values and Mission for the tercentenary period and beyond:

Vision

 To become openly recognised as the world’s leading fraternal organisation.

Mission

To be the fraternal society of choice for individuals seeking to develop their full potential through learning, social and community involvement, in line with the core values of Freemasonry. 

Values

Freemasonry’s values are based on the principles of brotherly love, relief and truth which today means integrity, kindness, honesty, fairness and tolerance.

  • Integrity: We say what we mean and when we make a promise, we keep it.
  • Kindness: We believe in playing a key role in our communities – we willingly give time and/or money to assist those not as fortunate as ourselves.
  • Honesty: We pride ourselves on transparency. Not only are we completely free to acknowledge our membership, we are encouraged to do so.
  • Fairness: We treat everyone as equal – we listen to others, explore our differences and work to find the common ground.
  • Tolerance: We show respect for the opinions of others and behave with understanding towards others.

What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations.
