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:

  • Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind
  • Leila May Foundation - Provide respite for children under 5 years with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions.
  • Teenage Cancer Trust

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

  • St Luke's Hospice - received £1600
  • Pet Samaritans - received £800
  • South Yorkshire Goalball - received £600
