Help & advice

The JHC Support Service has become
a very popular resource for people
living in and around Sawston.
Support workers Jan and Sarva can
see clients for appointments at the
charity’s office and sometimes for
home visits and they can also act as
advocates with other agencies.

Over the last decade JHC has helped
29 families move on to permanent
accommodation and we currently
house almost 60 people in the
village. We have a stock of 22
almshouses in Sawston which are
managed for us by King Street
Housing Society, based in Cambridge.

In recent years JHC has given a
wide range of grants and bursaries
to support the specific needs of
school children, vulnerable adults
and many more. The charity can
provide grants for essential items
as well as emotional support and
is always a friendly place to visit.

A belated happy 2017 from JHC! 

Whilst we welcome the New Year, and hope it’s a healthy and prosperous one for you, 2017 promises to be another busy year for our team. Following the move to John Huntingdon Centre last summer, we are better equipped than ever to offer high level support to Sawston’s community.

JHC wants to ensure its work remains relevant so that local individuals and groups can benefit from our services and grants whenever possible.  And, with 22 almshouses in our current housing portfolio, we will continue to pursue opportunities to add more properties for the benefit of local people.

The charity will also seek new partnerships that can increase the impact of our work locally – please get in touch if you have any ideas you’d like to discuss.

Don’t forget to sign up for the JHC newsletter too, so you can stay in touch with our latest news and announcements as they happen.

 Jill Hayden, Charity Manager
