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 November 2014 – January 2015 are:

  • The Haven - The Haven is the only national charity that provides free one-to-one emotional and physical support and therapies to improve the lives of anyone affected by breast cancer. Our donation will help to furnish The Haven's new respite house situated in Titchfield Hampshire.
  • Sail 4 Cancer - Sail 4 Cancer offer respite opportunities including sailing trips, sea cruises, park breaks and riverboat adventures to cancer patients and their families of all ages, fitness levels and stages of treatment. Our donation will help families who are on the waiting list to have a much needed break.
  • The Hazel Centre - The Hazel Centre provides physical, practical and emotional support for patients diagnosed with life limiting illnesses and their carers and families. Our donation of a lap top and printer will be for individuals to use to research additional information about their conditions, treatments available and symptoms.

This is how August '14 - October '14 Community Matter's charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Barnardo's received £1419
  • Chapter 1 received £603
  • Local charities received £978. This will be divided between 6 local charities receiving £163 each.
