JHC is a local, friendly Charity at the heart of the Sawston community.

Help & Advice

The JHC Support Service is popular for those living in and around Sawston.


Affordable and social housing made available for those in need.


JHC has grants available for individuals and families, as well as organisations.

Welcome to JHC

JHC collaborates with many local organisations in addition to offering support services from our current Tannery Road headquarters.
We hope 2016 will be another rewarding year of alliances with Sawston’s schools and community groups, local residents and families. Our dedicated team wants to build on recent successes to help improve the quality of life for local people through creative new partnerships. So let me know if you have ideas for how we might be able to collaborate with you.
We’re also excited at the prospect of moving to a new head office formerly known as the Compass centre but going to be John Huntingdon Centre, 187-189 High Street, later this year. It will provide increased visitor access and improved interview spaces for clients to meet with our JHC support team in complete confidence.
JHC is also converting the upstairs into two 1-bedroom flats and our plan is to refurbish our old offices into two 2-bedroom houses. You can see progress here - John Huntingdon Centre. Please get in touch to receive our newsletter to ensure you receive our latest news and announcements as they happen.
