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 August - October are:

  • Barnardo's - believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability, or behaviour. Their purpose is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children.
  • Maggie's Centre - provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends.
  • SCWAD-Swindon Children without a Diagnosis or Rare Conditions - support parents and carers with coffee mornings and socials, helping children with special needs by having monthly activity sessions.

This is how May - July Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Hometruths Volunteer Buddies - received £1050
  • DASH - Discovering Autistic Spectrum Happiness - received £930
  • CRI - Swindon Treatment & Recovery Service (STARS) - received £1020
