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 August 2016 – November 2016 are:

  • Family Matters: Our donation will be used for counselling sessions for adults and children affected by abuse
  • Age Exchange: Our donation will provide support facilities for older people with Dementia
  • Christmas Giving: Our donation will support a variety of different causes in the run up to Christmas

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

  • Bexley Beavers Disabled Swimming Club - received £1045
  • Freddie Farmer Foundation - received £968
  • Barnardos - received £987

John Lewis foundation

Since the introduction of the law requiring retailers to charge for single-use carrier bags, our charity, the John Lewis Foundation, has been responsible for distributing the proceeds to UK charities. We’ve aimed to choose charities closely aligned with the principles of the Foundation, supporting activities that promote education and inclusion, and enable employment. We’re sharing the past year’s proceeds of over £155,000 between six charities.
