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 2016 to April 2016 are:

  • The Triangle Adventure Playground Association - provides a green and harmonious space for children of varying abilities offering them a range of activities through which they can develop physically, emotionally and socially. Our donation will contribute toward their half term scheme that provides for 250 children in Lambeth keeping them occupied, fed and safe during their school holiday.
  • Remember My Baby - a charity created by professional photographers for the benefit of bereaved parents across the UK. It provides remembrance photographs for bereaved parents who have suffered the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth. Our donation will help purchase material needed for professionally edited images and image storage devices.
  • Paul's Cancer Support Centre - is a charity working with people affected by cancer, to find strength, resilience and ways of coping with the challenges the illness brings. Our donation will help fund the Centre in Battersea, south-west London, to provide services to those affected by cancer, their families, carers and friends.
