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. We are in desperate need of additional volunteers and financial donations to help us continue our service.

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

Everyone needs a home right now, please help us. #COVID2019 #coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdownUK ... #HomelessCovid19

Can you help?

This is an appeal for volunteers and donations as we expand our service to ensure our... residents can stay 'home' in response to @BorisJohnson 's announcement last night. #StayHomeSaveLives

Thank you to @TwyfordSchool Parents Association for the thoughtful donation of their hot drinks ... supplies which they dropped off before school closed. This will really help over coming weeks.

Thank you 💕
