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've supported are:

  • Ty Gwyn Special School
  • Singing for lung health
  • Jacob Abraham Foundation

    Carrier bag charging

    It's a legal requirement for all retailers in Wales to charge customers a minimum of 5p for each carrier bag they supply. Find out more

    This means that when you visit John Lewis Cardiff we'll have to charge you 5p for each carrier bag, but of course there won't be any charge if you choose to use your own bags. We'll be donating all the proceeds from each carrier bag we sell to Keep Wales Tidy (KWT), an environmental charity.

    For more information on carrier bag charging, please visit the
    Carrier Bag Charge website.
