Mel Evans
Interim Chief Executive
Grwp Cynefin

Hough Bellis Communications have been excellent to work with during the past six months during what has been a challenging period for the organisation. They have brought their considerable experience and expertise to support our internal communications and Leadership Team to develop and deliver a clear and understandable narrative to all of our stakeholders which has been tailored and structured to respond to their needs.

Considerable experience and expertise

Our positive approach to communications has been recognised by Community Housing Cymru as good practice. It feels as if Bobbie and the team have personally invested in our organisation and we are very pleased to have extended our working relationship with them into the future as we move forward as an organisation into a recovery phase and develop our plans for the future.


Hannah Rogers
Garden Organic

We’ve been working with Hough Bellis for a number of years now. They have supported our organisation through a number of phases and have always provided reliable, pragmatic advice and support.

Our profile has increased considerably

There’s no way we would be able to reach the audience we can without the help of the Hough Bellis team, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.


Dave Smith
Chief Executive
Stepping Stone Projects

Having worked with Hough Bellis at a previous employer, as soon as I became Chief Executive at a medium sized supported housing and homeless charity, that wanted to grow and diversify, I knew who to call. Whilst we had ambition for growth, we had no plans or marketing and communications strategy to deliver and frankly we didn’t really do it. For me to open up the potential of our fantastic organisation and colleagues to reach new markets, commissioners and partners I needed a cost effective and realisable plan within limited resources.

The right messages, in the right way,
to the right people at the right time

Hough Bellis, knowing the kind of organisation we are, developed us a bespoke marketing and communication strategy, which allows us to keep our uniqueness, deeply embedded values, family spirit and caring attitude whilst effectively raising our profile in delivering the right messages, in the right way, to the right people, at the right time. They are now helping us to deliver this strategy to fulfill our purpose and mission and to realise our ambitions.


Sally Battye
Group Director of Communications and EDI

I have worked with the Hough Bellis team from the start. They are known and trusted throughout the Marketing and Communications Team as well as the senior leadership team.

I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else

I rely on the team at Hough Bellis to help us convey proactive messages positively as well as maximise opportunities and of course provide sound advice in reactive situations. Their common-sense, flexible approach is hard to find. They work hard to understand what we want to achieve and then deliver it. True partnership working at its best. And above all else they are great people to work with. I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else.


Lawrence Milner
Corporate Assistant Director
Jigsaw Support

Hough Bellis provided us with their great skills and expertise to plan and manage a high-profile stakeholder event for our Motiv8 programme. They quickly understood what we wanted to achieve and worked hard to ensure that the event was a great success.

We would whole-heartedly recommend them

No detail was spared and they were always on hand if we needed them. Their contacts, event management skills, professionalism and vast knowledge of the housing sector are second to none. They were a pleasure to work with and we would whole-heartedly recommend them.
