COVID-19 Update from Father Hudsons Care

Who we are

As the principal social care agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham, we provide a range of services for people who are disadvantaged, marginalised or experiencing need. We work with people from all walks of life, offering friendship, care and support. 

We are courageous

With various changes in social policy and social need over the years, it would have been tempting for the Trustees to say that the time had come for the organisation to end. However, their reaction to constant change has been to seek out the best ways of meeting the new needs of those who are most vulnerable.

We are prophetic

Our services have changed and developed constantly, and the Trustees have not been afraid to become involved in work that some might consider challenges popular opinion. The value and dignity of people with dementia, profound disabilities, asylum seekers, refugees, homeless people and women involved in the criminal justice system is not universally recognised, but Christ’s command to love is not limited by popular opinion or prejudice.

Through all this change our mission has become enriched.

We continue to work with children and families through our Family Support service in schools, our Fostering services, and our support to adoptees and their families.

We have substantial services for older people, especially those who have dementia and for adults who have profound disabilities; providing residential, day care and community services.

Asylum seekers and refugees, women involved in the criminal justice system, young people at risk in the community, people experiencing homelessness; all of these receive the benefit of a professional and very caring service.

We do not forget

Through our Origins service we continue to support those who were in our care and who were affected by adoption, emigration or who lived in the former children’s homes.

We are open to all

Christ’s command to “love one another as I have loved you” underpins all our work, without favour or discrimination. We treat all individuals in a fair and equal manner regardless of gender, marital status, religion or belief, race, age, disability or sexual orientation.

Inspired by a hundred years of Catholic social teaching and the gospel of Christ, Father Hudson’s seeks to create places of welcome, support and care for those whose dignity as children of God has to be recognised.

Our desire to develop new services for those in great need is limited only by funds, not by our ambition to help.

We are professional

Our commitment to professionalism in our staff and our services is recognised by Ofsted and the CQC in the regulated services, and by many awarding bodies in the community projects.

We are prudent

Every attempt is made to be financially prudent, in order that the services we provide will not be short lived or disappear as long as the need is still there.

The governance and staff seek to find ways of delivering a service that embodies the underlying Catholic ethos of the organisation. Any temptation to offer less than people deserve, or have a right to, is resisted.

We go the extra mile

And further! The staff and volunteers are driven on by a desire to provide the best possible service at all times.

Father Hudson’s Care is the social care agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham, a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 512992) and a private company limited by guarantee (no. 1653388).
