Winchester Churches Nightshelter

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.

***WINNER OF THE 2017 QUEEN'S AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE***

We are delighted to announce that the volunteers at the Winchester Churches Nightshelter have received the prestigious honour of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) for 2017. The winners of the QAVS for 2017 were announced on June 2nd to honour their outstanding contributions to their local communities.

Nightshelter Manager, Michele Price, said: “It is wonderful to see our volunteers recognised for their ongoing and selfless support. Without them, we would not be able to provide our extensive service to those suffering homelessness in Hampshire. The Nightshelter operates with just 13 mainly part time paid staff: our volunteers are the beating heart of the organisation.”

The Winchester Churches Nightshelter would like to extend its warmest thanks to all of its volunteers. Their invaluable contributions are the cornerstone in which the Nightshelter can continue its vision to enable people to escape homelessness.
