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.
Join us for our annual Poverty & Homelessness Action Week evening at the Winchester Discovery Centre on Wednesday 29th January 2014, 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start.
Trust Matters: Working to Rebuild Shattered Lives - How important is it to be trusted to make us feel valued? How important is it to have a job, an identity in employment? Guest speaker Vic Laws MBE, Ambassador for ‘The Clink’ Restaurants in high security UK prisons, will talk about the extraordinary success of training prisoners in the hospitality industry. There will also be talks from Winchester Cathedral and the University of Winchester who have worked with the Nightshelter on successful work placement schemes for the homeless in Winchester.
This is a free event - just turn up on the night. For further information please call us on 01962 862050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
