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 2015 - July 2015 are:

  • Newbury Restorative Justice Service - works with victims of crime or anti-social behabiour to enable them to meet with offenders to tell them how the crime afftected them.
  • Naomi's House and Jacksplace - hospices for children and young people with life-limiting conditions.
  • St Johns Ambulance Newbury and Thatcham Cadets - training young people aged 10 to 18 in first aid in an educational and fun environment.

This is how February 2015 - April 2015 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Young Corn Exchange -  received £920
  • Kennet Explorer Scouts - received £980
  • the Bus of Hope - received £1100
