John Huntingdon's Charity

01223 492492

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.


I am delighted to announce that David Baslington has been selected as our next Chair by the JHC Trustees.

Over the coming years David will help steer our board and team as they work hard to support Sawston’s community, navigating challenges and celebrating successes equally.

As part of our long-term planning, the charity’s move to our recently converted John Huntingdon Centre (previously known as the Compass Centre) this August represents another key milestone. Not only will it provide the team with more accessible space to support our clients, it will also enable us to add four new properties to JHC’s housing portfolio.
