Hop for the Homeless

Getting hopping this Easter and help people experiencing homelessness.

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 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

A big thank you to Longstock Park Farm Shop in #Stockbridge and their customers for their kind ... support.


Every year, @WinColl kindly donates its good condition used mattresses to the Nightshelter. They ... were kindly delivered to us last week by the award-winning Winchester Bed Company.

We feel so fortunate to have such a support network helping to make our vital work happen.

Wishing you a Happy Easter, from everyone at the Nightshelter.
