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 True Cost of Homelessness

Homelessness is not just about losing your home. It can also mean losing your independence; your support network; your mental and physical wellbeing; your dignity and confidence. The true cost of homelessness is huge and far-reaching.

At this year’s Annual General Meeting and Supporters’ Evening, we take a look at the ways in which homelessness can ‘cost’ us. From the emotional, physical and financial impact it can have on the hundreds of people who seek help from the Nightshelter every year, to how much it costs for the Nightshelter to get each guest back on the road to independent living.

Please join us from 6.30pm on Wednesday 22nd October at St Peter’s Church Hall, Jewry Street for this exciting opportunity to hear from guests speakers and experts, learn more about our work, and discover the ‘true cost of homelessness.’

Booking is not essential, however please email admin@wcns.org.uk or call 01962 862050 if you would like to attend so that we can get an idea of numbers.
