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:

  • The Trussell Trust
  • Multiple Sclerosis Society
  • Royal Manchester Children's Hospital
    • The charities we supported from May 2017 to July 2017 were:

      • Marie Curie raised £1,100
      • Kidscan raised £1000
      • Friends of Delamere raised £900
