Winchester Churches Nightshelter – offering hope and help to the homeless
Winchester Churches Nightshelter is open 365 days a year offering an essential lifeline and first port of call for those in crisis.
We provide high quality accommodation and food, a safe and caring temporary home, and specialist support to restore self-esteem, develop skills, and support people back into long-term accommodation and independent living. Our aim is to enable people to rebuild their lives and escape homelessness for good.
The Nightshelter recently collaborated with the national charity Fixers and members of Winchester's Roteract Society to make the short film Hidden Winchester. Former Nightshelter residents Briony, Alex, Chris, Ben and William are featured talking about their experiences of being homeless and the challenges they are trying to overcome.
