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.

John Huntingdon’s Charity

Welcome to JHC,

2019 promises to be another busy year for our team here at the John Huntingdon Centre.

These are changing and challenging times so we are keen to ensure our support and other services remain relevant for as many local individuals and groups as possible.

If you need assistance accessing Universal Credit or other benefits, please get in touch with our friendly team who will meet with you – in confidence – to discuss your options.

Local residents can also access CAB drop-ins, and South Cambridgeshire District Council, Mind in Cambridgeshire and Relate Counselling services through JHC.

We welcome your ideas and feedback, either by email or in person, so please keep in touch. And don’t forget to sign up for the JHC newsletter offering our latest news and announcements as they happen.

Jill Hayden,

Charity Manager
