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…

Do you have any white goods you can spare?

One of our residents is excited to be moving to his own ... accommodation soon but he is in need of a fridge or fridge/freezer, cooker and washer.

If you can help please email admin@wcns.org.uk

A big thank you to @BespokeBiking for taking our residents out for another Ride for Wellbeing. This ... week's hilly route took the riders out to the beautiful @AvingtonPark. Such a great way to get some exercise, build confidence and have some time away from their worries.
