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

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.

Sending a big shout out to everyone across the globe taking part in tonight's #BigSleepOut to show ... solidarity and support for those experiencing homelessness.

We're not sleeping out but at the Nightshelter we are providing a safe and supportive place for 17 people to sleep in.
