Our Story

Hamilton Davies Trust is a registered charity (Number 1106123) founded in 2004.

We provide charitable support to the local communities of Irlam and Cadishead (Salford), with some additional support given to Rixton-with-Glazebrook (Warrington). A large part of what we do is support a variety of projects across the area enabling development from the community up.

We do this by awarding grants, which can range from small donations of a few hundred pounds to more significant investments. In addition to the grants that we give, we work in partnership with Salford City Council and other key stakeholders on the regeneration strategy for Irlam and Cadishead.

To date, we have provided support across the area totaling in excess of £7m. This covers over 550 grants to local community organisations, regeneration projects, as well as administrative support, advice and free room hire.

We are based in the former George Hotel at the heart of the communities we serve. The building was one of the early regeneration projects in Irlam and Cadishead and was refurbished after it had been vacant for some time.

Renamed Hamilton Davies House, the office is home to our ever-growing team of dedicated employees and volunteers. HDT and partners have been instrumental in delivering a number of significant projects including, Hamilton Davies Sixth Form College, Irlam and Cadishead Leisure Centre, Irlam Steel Pavilion and the current redevelopment of Irlam Station.
