Our support for communities and NHS workers
At this time of national crisis, the John Lewis Partnership is wholeheartedly committed to ensuring we support our customers and those who need us.
We have set up a £1 million Community Support Fund to be distributed by Waitrose & Partners shops to local communities. This is being used in a number of ways, including creating care packages for those who need them, and delivering boxes of essentials to local care homes and community groups.
In addition, we’re working with Age UK, FareShare, and The Trussell Trust by donating £75,000 initially to each of these three charities for immediate activity in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
We recognise the tireless work of NHS staff, supporting us all through these unprecedented circumstances. The John Lewis Partnership is designing and installing a wellbeing area for medical staff and volunteers at the Nightingale NHS Hospital, London. The space is the only area within the main part of the hospital that is specifically designed for all staff to have a place of sanctuary, when they need help or timeout to relax from their extremely challenging environment.
We have also partnered with the British Medical Association to distribute care packages for frontline NHS workers at the busiest hospitals across the UK. In addition, John Lewis & Partners is also donating a vast range of items such as pillows, phone chargers, eye masks and hand cream to hospitals
