The John Lewis Partnership is currently conducting a review of philanthropic giving. Pending completion of the review, the Trustees of the John Lewis Foundation have suspended all new funding. Current commitments will not be affected. The Application Form and Guidance Pack are therefore temporarily unavailable.
Single Use Carrier Bag Levy
In line with the compulsory carrier bag charges introduced by the governments of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, John Lewis + Partners charges customers for the use of carrier bags. All proceeds from single use carrier bags are donated to the John Lewis Foundation and distributed to charitable works in England and Scotland. The carrier bag charge implemented in Wales is allocated to Keep Wales Tidy, and in Northern Ireland is payable direct to the Department of the Environment.
