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:

  • Bertie's Battle - A charity fundraising to provide stem cell therapy and intensive physiotherapy for Bertie who, following serious complications at birth, was born with Severe Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.
  • Raystede - A charity that rescue, re-home and provide sanctuary for more than 1500 animals each year and are looking to improve their services and facilities.
  • Young Epilepsy - A charity working to keep young people with epilepsy safe and those around them informed by providing training to schools for both teachers and students.

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

  • Kent Friendz - received £838
  • Baby Bundles - received £1059
  • Kent Lung Awareness - received £1103
