UKH4H celebrated its 10th anniversary in April 2020. We wanted to mark this momentous occasion with something very special.
So, it gives us the greatest pleasure to announce, that this SMALL Charity has BIG news. The charity team have had this dream since 2011, and want to let you know that dreams can come true!
We have purchased a beautiful caravan on a holiday park. In Kent (‘Heroes Retreat’) where we can accommodate homeless ex-service personnel in an emergency situation to provide them with a secure unit until we can place them in more permanent accommodation. We can also offer veterans a much-needed break away with their families.
We will be working alongside various military charities to find out who fits the criteria to receive a free break. Our main objectives are to help those who have served our country and may now be in need of break, including sufferers of PTSD, the elderly veterans who are lonely, isolated and vulnerable, and their families who are always the ones left to pick up the pieces.

• Seaside and sandy beaches only a short drive away

Throughout the year, the park welcomes special guests and regular cabaret acts to perform in the entertainment venue. You will be pleased to know the entertainment venue offers a full Sky and BT Sports package, so you can enjoy your stay without missing a single goal!
Over the last 10 years, we have recognised that the main reason most ex-service personnel end up on the streets, on drugs or alcohol with relationships breaking down etc, is because they don’t have the support that is needed along the way!
That support is now here in the form of Heroes Retreat where the spouse and children can have fun, while councillors are on hand for PTSD sufferers to help them hopefully never reach the point where they lose everything and end up on the streets!
We truly believe at UKH4H that prevention is better than cure.
We couldn’t be prouder, that our SMALL Charity continues to make such a BIG difference to so many, and we couldn’t do it without you. So, thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, love, and support over the last 10 years, and please continue to support us and donate here.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
