Our Charity Partners

Hudgell Solicitors has proudly supported hundreds of charities, local community groups and good causes through donations, fundraising and staff volunteering.

Over £1 million has been donated directly by our community arm, The Neil Hudgell Trust, supporting a wide range of projects, small charities and deserving individuals.

We are proud to have developed many strong, long-lasting partnerships with those we support, helping to ensure our work is not just short term, but that real legacies are left.

Our Charity partners include Day One Trauma Support which assists people who have sustained serious injuries, Paul For Brain Recovery (P.A.U.L) which supports brain injury survivors on the road to recovery, the Spinal Injuries Association, which supports people who suffer spinal cord injuries and Limbless Association, which offers vital information, advice and support for amputees, their families, friends and professionals.

We also have links to many organisations set up to provide more personalised advice and support if you need it and would suggest contacting them to access those services as required.

The work of the charities we support, and have helped previously, is detailed below.

Day One Trauma Support Trusted Legal Partner

Together, Hudgell Solicitors and Day One Trauma Support are able to immediately assist those who’ve sustained serious injuries.

Day One’s vision is that everyone affected by major physical trauma is supported to navigate the challenges they and their families face without feeling alone.

The charity has a presence in six NHS Trauma Centres across the country and provides access to a range of practical services which can help people navigate the physical, mental, financial and legal challenges they are likely to face.

Our partnership helps to ensure our joint work is not just short-term, but that real legacies are left. We are one of the charity’s trusted legal support partners.

Our colleagues at Hudgells are actively fundraising for Day One Support and helping to raise awareness about the work the charity does and the services it provides.

We are also a legal panel member of Day One Trauma Support (DOTS) providing our expertise to support trauma patients, covering personal injury claims, broader legal services and pro-bono work.

Paul For Brain Recovery (P.A.U.L)

We were proud to help Paul Spence, an inspirational brain injury survivor, establish his charity in 2016.

He recognised the need for a community-based recovery service to give all brain injury survivors the chance of a better future, and to enable them to live their best lives.

The charity offers a community service that provides support, guidance and education to individuals and families affected by acquired brain injury (ABI) in Hull and the surrounding areas.

It also campaigns to raise awareness, improve services and promote an understanding of brain injury, whilst Paul continues to support our brain injury clients as an official ambassador for Hudgell Solicitors.

Today our colleagues volunteer at the P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery Centre at the Wilberforce Health Centre in Hull, in various roles, fundraise and help raise awareness about the charity.

Spinal Injuries Association and Martin's Mountain

Hudgell Solicitors and Spinal Injuries Association are campaign partners, fighting for change and to amplify the voice of people living with spinal cord injuries.

As SIA’s official campaign partner, we work alongside the charity to educate and engage the UK public through awareness campaigns, and to contest the biggest barriers they face.

Hudgells and the SIA are supporting calls for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the ‘inadequate and dangerous’ state of bowel care for patients with spinal injuries in healthcare settings.

Our partnership with the Spinal Injuries Association began in 2019 with a pledge to raise £100,000 for the charity and the Martin’s Mountain Appeal.

Martin Hibbert, our client and survivor of the 2017 Manchester Arena terror attack, raised £1m for SIA, by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in a specially adapted wheelchair.

Martin was left in a wheelchair after suffering a serious spinal cord injury but was determined to turn tragedy into something good and give something back to the charity that supported him from day one.

The Limbless Association

We were proud to work with the Limbless Association to help it launch its Support and Connect Hub initiative in Hull in 2019, helping to build awareness throughout the city of the support provided.

The charity aims to ensure that ‘no amputee need cope alone’ and at Hudgells we provide support through donations to assist with the day-to-day running of the charity.

We are also a legal panel member for the charity, offering expertise in the areas of personal injury, clinical negligence and legal cases involving catastrophic injury and amputation.
