Hello Paula, best thing to do is get it to your nearest wildlife hospital/carer. If you call the BHPS on 01584 890801 they will be able to tell you where your nearest one is.
Until you can get it to a carer, keep the hoglet in a high sided box with newspaper, food (meaty cat or dog food) fresh water and a towel, in a quiet place away from pets and disturbance. If the hoglet is cold, you can also put a hot water bottle under the towel to help keep the hoglet warm. You would need to keep refilling though as leaving a cold water bottle in there will drain heat from the hoglet.
Hope that helps but do call BHPS ASAP as they are the experts.
