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

It's moving day for one of our residents,we're so excited for him as he begins a new chapter. #SmallCharityWeek2021

Our residents are in for a treat today after these yummy cakes were kindly dropped off. They are the... unsold goodies from a cake sale held at the weekend to raise money for the fabulous @WinchHospice

Thank you for thinking of us ❤️

We are so grateful for all the thoughtful and generous donations given by our supporters. From ... toilet roll to fresh fruit, it really helps.
