UK HOMES 4 HEROES OUTREACH
WORKING AT STREET LEVEL SINCE 2010
JAMIE HOMELESS EX-SERVICE PERSONNEL
For over 13 years the charity teams have been on the streets of the United Kingdom, helping our homeless ex-service personnel when and where possible.
The London outreach site was set up back in early 2010 outside St John's Church, Waterloo - right opposite the station, for years Waterloo was reported to be the capital of the kingdom of the homeless or 'Cardboard City' as it also became known as.
This meant a big displacement of the homeless and now you will find our teams all over the city, every Wednesday and Sunday 52 weeks of the year . You will find the charity team feeding , clothing and giving free advice and help to our homeless ex-service personnel.
OUTREACH VEHICLE HERO 3
This vehicle is the first of the charity's three outreach vehicles which are custom built with microwave, hot water boiler and hand washing facilities. Above the bulk head is built-in storage for food and in the back racked storage for sleeping bags- full range of kit to give a lifeline to our lads and lasses rough sleeping on our streets.
This vehicle was kindly donated by our charity patron Mr Barry Albin OBE through his company F.A Albin & Sons who repatriated all our fallen heroes from the Armed Services. HERO 3, like all our outreach vehicles, carry a 5 star food hygiene certificate and first aid kits.
It is with great sadness that Barry passed away in 2015, but his legacy will always be appreciated.
