Rebuilding lives, one night at a time

The Winchester Beacon 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 116 people a bed
Served 12,410 meals to our residents
Provided 297 hours of free counselling and psychotherapy
Helped 80 people to successfully move on to planned accommodation

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

We are only a small charity but we have a huge amount of kind people supporting us. This ...#WorldKindnessDay we want to say THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who has thoughtfully given their time or donated to our charity, we couldn't do it without you.

We’d love to keep in touch with you about the work we do, and how you can help and support us.
