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 February 2017 – April 2017 are:

  • Look Ahead- the vision of the charity is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions, providing three hostels for homeless teenagers.
  • MIND BLANK - providing advice, support and other services to empower and develop anyone experiencing mental health issues.
  • The Joy Foundation - providing grants to senior groups (over 65) in Milton Keynes for cinema trips, tea and coffee mornings. Bringing laughter to senior days off.

This is how November 2016 - January 2017 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes received £1260
  • Bedfordshire SANDSreceived £630
  • Medical Detection Dogs received £1110

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.
