Statement of Business Principles
1. Truth and Integrity
1.01 Speaking the truth in business includes honesty in all our dealings. We have a long tradition of making every effort to keep the promises we make, including on price, delivery or quality.
1.03 Our prices must not be deceptive.
1.04 We speak plainly, that is, in a business context not using devious language to mislead or confuse about our products, services or in any of our business dealings.
1.06 We are not afraid to affirm the truth that profit is necessary for survival and reinvestment, permits better conditions for workers and suppliers, and provides taxes for the common good.
1.07 Transparency is a name for a traditional Quaker characteristic.
2. Justice, equality and community
2.01 All of us are disabled in some way and we all need measures to enable us to contribute better to the common cause.
3.01 A simple lifestyle for our organisation as well as ourselves addresses the ethical problem of our time that overuse of the earth's resources is affecting our carbon footprint and world poverty.
4.01 Traditionally, we hesitate to take anyone to court, especially those weaker than us.
4.02 Forcing our wishes on others by strong and angry words can be a form of domination, lacking respect for the other. Our tradition is to speak gently and respect others’ views.
4.03 We desire a peaceable relationship with the earth, using resources sustainably.
5. The Light Within
5.01 We are responsible to the Light Within, not to the powers of this world. Love is the commandment.
5.01 We have therefore always been courageous in standing up for what we believe to be right.
"Claire provides excellent tailored Portuguese lessons to suit the learner. I have found her to be professional, knowledgeable and always well prepared. Following my lessons with her I organized a 7 month stay in northern Portugal for me and my family, entirely in Portuguese. Claire is a delight to work with and involves tutees in the wider Portuguese/Brazilian community where desired."

"I started to learn Portuguese about 11 months ago. The pace of the lectures is about right. The lecturer combines grammar, text and conversation to make it more interesting. I really enjoy her lectures. She is very helpful, flexible and adjusts the lectures to my progress and needs. Unfortunately, I had less time for revision in the past couple of months, but I still feel that attending the lectures is useful for my progress. I would highly recommend her to anybody who wants to learn this beautiful language."
