Virtual event Winchester

After putting in place new procedures and strategies, we remain open during the Coronavirus pandemic for our current residents who are experiencing homelessness. At present, we do NOT have any confirmed cases of the virus at the Nightshelter. If you are able to help us to stay open either by volunteering or donating please contact admin@wcns.org.uk or go to the relevant pages on our website.  Thank you for all the amazing support so far.

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.

THANK YOU to our awesome foursome who successfully tackled Land's End to John O'Groats in aid of the... Nightshelter. They have now raised an unbelievable £3,875 which is going to have a positive impact on many lives.

A big thank you to Geoff and Rob for their help this week refreshing the paintwork at our entrance....

To keep our residents, staff and volunteers safe we are keeping footfall inside the building to a minimum so this outside job was perfect for our eager volunteers!

Thank you ❤️
