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 April 2016 – June 2016 are:

  • Watford Citizens Advice Bureau
  • DEMAND (Design and Manufacture for Disability
  • Haemodialysis Centre at Watford General Hospital

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

  • Age UK received £960
  • Herts Mind received £900
  • Barnardo's, Care Leavers Kits received £1140
