The Neil Hudgell Trust was established in 2012 to support the local community and voluntary groups and to address social needs across the communities it serves. Having first launched in 2012 to ensure that as a business passionate about the communities it serves, Hudgell Solicitors was able to give something back, we have since been delighted to have donated more than £500,000 to support hundreds of worthy organisations and individuals.
Led by chair Jo Hudgell, the Neil Hudgell Trust has supported many inspirational groups of people in the areas in and around our offices in Hull, Leeds, Manchester and London, helping make a real positive difference to so many lives.
From 2012 to 2016, the Neil Hudgell Trust offered small grants, designed to support a wide range of local projects and smaller charities . Over the years we have developed strong, long-lasting partnerships with many of those we have supported, helping to ensure our work is not just short term, but that real legacies are left.
In 2018, the Neil Hudgell Trust moved from a small grants offering to medium grants which saw the company partner with three homeless charities and launch our ‘Elephant in the Room’ campaign to confront the social inequality of homelessness. That year, the Neil Hudgell Trust partnered with the Hull Homeless Community Project, Simon On The Streets in Leeds and the West London Mission by donating an initial £5,000 to each to help with the day to day running of the charities, whilst also pledging to provide ongoing support through further fundraising, marketing support and staff volunteering hours.
In 2019 Hudgell staff chose three children’s charities to benefit from the firm’s community support throughout 2019.
Special Stars in Hull, Candlelighters in Leeds and Coram in London have each received an initial £5,000 donation from the firm and staff have been busy within the workplace and externally, fundraising and volunteering hours.

Why the Neil Hudgell Trust is delighted to support a charity helping hundreds of families affected by disability
In 2018 we linked up with groups in Hull, London and Leeds working to support homeless and marginalised people through providing practical and emotional help, as well as seeking to educate the public concerning the problems of social isolation and homelessness. Our ‘Elephant in the Room’ campaign was launched in to confront the social inequality of homelessness.
