Our Overarching Goals

Our Overarching Goals:

  • Our goal is for residents to make a planned move to more permanent accommodation when the time is right for them, having made the best use of the services provided by the Nightshelter and other support agencies.
  • We plan to expand the Nightshelter capacity to increase the number of people who can benefit from all of the Nightshelter’s services.
  • We intend to increase the level of organisational resilience to ensure that the Nightshelter continues to thrive, offering a sustainable and increasing level of service to those experiencing homelessness.

Aims – we will do this by:

  • Continuing to develop our own move-on provision.
  • Identifying new forms of support and developing appropriate provision tailored to individual need.
  • Further developing our volunteer base, increasing the volunteer support provided by those with specialist expertise to further enhance Nightshelter services.
  • Work as a pro-active partner in Winchester and more widely across Hampshire to support individuals and other organisations to reduce and end homelessness though continuing to raise public awareness about homelessness.
