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.

The charities we've supported are:

  • Sussex Pet Rescue
  • The Trussell Trust
  • Chestnut Tree Hospice

    With the introduction of the new carrier bag charging law, single-use carrier bags will no longer be free. Our charity, known as the
    John Lewis Foundation, will be responsible for distributing the proceeds to charities throughout the UK.
