Our Partnerships

Mary Peters Trust

We're proud to provide support to young athletes from all recognised sports, alongside the Mary Peters Trust, with a bursary programme to help fund their sporting journeys.

Ulster Wildlife

In 2023 we supported and helped promote the Let Nature In campaign which aims to empower households in Northern Ireland to make space for nature, and promote biodiversity in their own gardens.

The Conservation Volunteers

In 2023 we invested in projects such as The Tree Nursery at the Ulster Folk Museum, and the restoration of the bogland at the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh.


£30k awarded to 15 young athletes



Encouraging 5,000 households across Northern Ireland to Let Nature In



Funding the harvesting of over 250,000 native seeds



Reducing our Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 50% by 2030




Since 2021, we have proudly supported Mary Peters Trust with a £5,000 bursary programme which each year awards ten young athletes from across Northern Ireland crucial funding to support them on their sporting journeys.

Lady Mary Peters said: “We are grateful to Hughes Insurance for its continued support, which enables the Mary Peters Trust to help talented athletes across the country to reach their goals. To date this bursary programme supported athletes from various sports including archery, powerchair football, netball and table tennis, and was important in helping the selected athletes continue to realise their potential.”

With 18 nature reserves across Northern Ireland, Ulster Wildlife benefit from our Action for Impact initiative which supports the charity’s Let Nature In campaign aiming to empower households in Northern Ireland to make space for nature in their own gardens.

Dawn Miskelly, Director of Development and Governance at Ulster Wildlife said: “The importance of boosting nature’s recovery in Northern Ireland cannot be underestimated as one in ten indigenous species is at risk of extinction. With support from Hughes and their staff, we hope to encourage to households to support by bringing nature back into their gardens and outdoor spaces.”

The partnership with The Conservation Volunteers, supports a Tree Nursery at the Ulster Folk Museum which harvest over 250,000 native seeds per year to cultivate saplings that are planted in many of Northern Ireland’s woodlands to protect and replenish biodiversity. We also support an ongoing project at Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh where The Conservation Volunteers is dedicated to the restoration of bogland to support carbon offsetting and enhance biodiversity.  

Dave Morton, NI Assistant Director with The Conservation Volunteers said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Hughes Insurance on these important projects that protect and restore our natural environment, increase biodiversity, and connect people to conservation.”

As members of Business in the Community NI we have worked collaboratively on various initiatives to help us deliver on our environmental objectives.
The Climate Action Programme designed to raise awareness of the core elements of Carbon Literacy, as well as exploring the opportunities, risks and challenges that climate change will present empowered a number of staff to become climate literate. This assisted us in our plans to reduce our scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The Climate Action Pledge challenged and supported us through the process of setting GHG reduction targets and publicly demonstrating our commitment to address this critical issue.
