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 2017 to November 2017 are:

  • Priscilla Bacon Lodge Support Group
  • Time Norfolk
  • The Walnut Tree Project
    • The charities we supported from February 2017 to April 2017 were:

      • Marie Curie raised £1516
      • Red Balloon Norwich raised £615
      • East Coast Truckers raised £869
John Lewis foundation

Since the introduction of the law requiring retailers to charge for single-use carrier bags, our charity, the John Lewis Foundation, has been responsible for distributing the proceeds to UK charities. We’ve aimed to choose charities closely aligned with the principles of the Foundation, supporting activities that promote education and inclusion, and enable employment. We’re sharing the past year’s proceeds of over £155,000 between six charities.
