The Neil Hudgell Trust, led by chair Jo Hudgell,
has been privileged to support many inspirational groups of people in the areas in and around its offices in Hull,
Leeds and London, helping make a real positive difference to so many lives.
In October 2017 the Trust launched its
‘Elephant in the Room’ campaign
to confront the social inequality of homelessness,
and 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 educating the public concerning the problems of social isolation and homelessness.
The Hull Homeless Community Project, Simon on the Streets in Leeds,
and The West London Mission were selected as the charities to benefit from the Trusts support.
Simon on the Streets
was founded in 1999 and operates in Leeds,
Bradford and Huddersfield, aiming to help the ‘homeless and rootless’ who find themselves with nowhere else to turn.
Serving homeless and marginalised people since 1887,
The West London Mission
runs projects to support and empower some of the most vulnerable people in London.
The Hull Homeless Community Project
not only works with people rough sleeping on the streets,
but its support extends to all those affected or at risk of homelessness.
