2.6 challenge banner

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 need of  some 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.
