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:

  • Alzheimer's Society
  • Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity. They provide information and practical and emotional support to help people live with dementia. In Peterborough, the Alzheimer's Society runs support services that include Peer support groups, Dementia cafes, Carers workshops and Activity groups.

  • Barnardo's
  • Barnardo's believes in children, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. They ensure their needs are met and their voices heard. In Peterborough, Barnardo's children's centres provide support for some of the city's most vulnerable families.

  • Circles Network
  • Circles Network help children, young people and adults in Peterborough who suffer social isolation or are disadvantaged due to disability. They provide intensive care and support, assisting people to work through everyday problems and helping them realise their goals. They are fundraising to create a garden at the back of the community hub, which will be a huge benefit to visitors.

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.
