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

Did you know that all our residents have the opportunity to access our free counselling and ... psychotherapy service?

For many residents, it is the first time that they feel listened to and the only time they have experienced empathy.


Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference?

We are looking for a new Operations ... Manager. Find out more about this rewarding role:

Cards & companionship.

It was great to see and hear some of our residents enjoying a game of ... cards this morning. The sound of their chats and laughter filled the lounge.

It's not just support that residents find here, often they find friendships too.
