We have a rich tradition of supporting our local communities through donations, fundraising and volunteering. Our commitment to contribute to the wellbeing of the communities where we operate is enshrined in our Constitution.
We provide support and opportunities for our Partners to volunteer their time and skills to causes they care about. This includes an opportunity to volunteer for up to six months, on full pay and benefits through our flagship volunteering programme, The Golden Jubilee Trust
We support local communities through our Community Matters schemes, through which John Lewis & Partners and Waitrose & Partners donate money to local causes chosen by customers. In 2018/19, over £4 million was donated to charities local to our branches.
