Rebuilding lives, one night at a time

Winchester Churches Nightshelter is open 365 days a year and provides accommodation, food and vital support services to help break the cycle of homelessness and enable our residents to rebuild their lives.

We offer much more than just a bed for the night; our aim is to create a safe, caring temporary home for our residents, and give support when it’s needed most. Our provision includes comfortable accommodation, a nutritious menu and wide-ranging services to restore self-esteem, develop skills, and support people back into long-term accommodation and independent living.

Our vision is to transform lives, inspire hope and end homelessness.

Last year we…

Gave 92 people a bed
Served 12,675 meals to our residents
Provided 259 hours of free counselling and psychotherapy
Helped 47 people to successfully move on

We’re winners of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

What help is there for people experiencing #homelessness during the cold weather?

With temperatures... set to drop tonight we are getting prepared to put up our extra beds so that we can take in more people for the night.
