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 2016 - January 2017 are:

  • The Wildlife Trusts - Designed to inspire people to value and take action for nature, this donation will assist with the first hand contact with nature for children.
  • CLIC Sargent - provide clinical, practical and emotional support for young people and their families to cope with Cancer and get the most out of life.
  • Dogs for Good - They provide assistance dogs to adults and children with disabilities. Our donation will assist with the cost of socialising puppies in the Trafford area.

This is how July 2016 - October 2016 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:


  • Harry & Co - £750
  • St Anns Hospice, Little Hulton - £1,500
  • Reach Out Charity - £750
