Supporting our communities

Our aims

We're proud of the close links we forge between our Partners and local schools, charities and organisations. And wherever we do business, at home or abroad, we work with communities to make a difference. That's why:

  • Our Community Matters programme in our shops continues to support local charities and community groups.
  • We aim to give at least 1% of pre-tax profits to community initiatives.
  • We will continue to seek out projects that support the John Lewis Foundation at home and abroad.

If you'd like to nominate a good cause for Community Matters please complete the nomination form and take it to the Customer Services department.

The charities we're supporting from May 2016 – July 2016 are:

  • Barnardos
  • Freddie Farmer Foundation
  • Bexley Beavers Disabled Swimming Club

This is how February 2016 - April 2016 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • British Red Cross - received £1081
  • Friends of Chernobyl's Children (Medway) - received £1025
  • CCT Tiger Ward - received £894
