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…

The Nightshelter provides the opportunity for a new start. Homelessness does not need to be the end,... it can be the beginning.

At Christmas time we often get asked how people can help support the Nightshelter and the people ... staying with us. Here are some ideas for ways to give this Christmas and help us to continue making a difference.

#Winchester #Homelessness #Christmas

Last week's Winchester #Election hustings @UnitedChurchWin included a question posed by the ... Nightshelter asking candidates for their views on homelessness.

Tune into @WinchRadio tonight from 8pm and Wednesday from 9pm to hear the responses.
