St Edwards Home for Boys was formally run by a charity, the Father Hudson's Society, the home closed down in 1988.

Father George Vincent Hudson founded Father Hudson's Society. From a lowly beginning, Vincent started the society, while working to the care of many thousands of children in desperate need. Father Hudson was born in 1873 to a Worcestershire family. He was educated at Oscott College in Birmingham and was ordained a priest on 1st November 1898.

With the growth of industry, increasing urban development and the exploitation of child labour, Father Hudson noted the children that found themselves destitute and helpless, friendless and powerless. He drew plans to help and care for them. It was the Bishop of Birmingham, Bishop Ilsley, who set Father Hudson on to rescue the helpless children for the Diocese of Birmingham. Stretching from Stoke on Trent in the north down to Oxford in the south, the Birmingham Diocesan Rescue Society was formally set up in 1902. Later to became known as Father Hudson's Homes. Father Hudson died in 1936.
