Mission Statement

Hydon Hill is a residential home (with nursing care), providing a range of services for adults with physical disabilities. Ages range from late teens to retirement age.

Set in the beautiful Surrey Hills AONB, our home was purpose-built in the 1970s and is surrounded by peaceful woodland. The scenic and historic town of Godalming is just a short drive away - it offers many useful amenities, including excellent shops, restaurants and pubs.

Our residents make sure their home has a lively atmosphere. At their request, we offer lots of activities in the home, including arts and crafts, games, cooking, and movie-watching. We also have a lovely garden and our own charity shop on site ( - donations and shoppers always welcome between 11.00 and 3.00 pm).

Our fully-trained staff work hard to ensure everyone is happy in their home. We support our residents to be independent and to take part in community activities as they wish.

The internationally known Leonard Cheshire Organisation has been offering residential care to people with long term disabilities for over 70 years. Join our team and you will have a wealth of experience and expertise to work with.

Whether you join us for 1 hour a month or multiple hours per week, you will be much valued by our residents and greatly rewarded by knowing you are making such a valuable contribution.

Thank you for your interest.
