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:

  • Basic - The Brain and Spinal Injury Centre, Salford
  • Winston's Wish, North West
  • Derian House Children's Hospice

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


  • The Curve, Barnardo's - Moss Side, Manchester - £950
  • The Friends of Brentwood, Community Special School in Trafford - £950
  • Guide Dogs for the Blind, Salford - £1100
