Winchester NS Supporters Evening and AGM

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 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.

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

Thank you so much to the churches, schools and community groups who have chosen to support us this ... harvest. We are grateful for every donation.

Thank you to the pupils at @selborne_pri for their lovely handmade card.

Today we are marking #WorldHomelessDay2020

Each pair of shoes represents someone who has stayed ... with us this year.

We are thinking of everyone across the world who is, or has been, faced with homelessness.
