Lions Code of Ethics


Because we deal with vulnerable people, and because we raise funds from the general public, Lions Clubs have Constitutions and procedures for the ways in which we operate, and the things we do. But overarching all these, we expect individual Lions to follow the highest standards in their own personal lives. The Code of Ethics has been set out to provide a guide to what is expected. We aren’t perfect, but there is every reason why we should try our best in every circumstance, and hopefully we can at least come close to the ideal.

The Code


TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.


TO SEEK success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.


TO REMEMBER that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients and customers and true to myself.


WHENEVER a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.


TO HOLD friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists, not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.


TO ALWAYS bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state and my community, and to give my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed. To give them freely of my time, labour, and means.


TO AID others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.


TO BE CAREFUL with my critiscism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
