Important information for all referral agencies

Please note that before we can accept a referral, we will require a N.I. (National Insurance) number and details of any benefits received.

Residents are all required to pay £2.00 per night on the door (or £10 per night if working).

We are an alcohol and drug free nightshelter and we breathalyse on the door every night. All prospective residents need to be made aware of this and our House agreement before committing to stay with us.

Residents arrive at the earliest at 6.00pm each night and are kindly asked to leave the Nightshelter by around 8.30am each morning. We are not a hostel so residents cannot return during the daytime, unless they have an on-site appointment. However, there is a local homelessness day centre (Trinity Winchester), only ten minutes walk from the Nightshelter, which is open Monday to Friday and where residents may spend the day and eat a free lunch, if they wish.
