We address the effects of homelessness to offer solutions, hope and choices


I am a proud to be a trustee of Trinity Winchester a day centre for the homeless in Winchester. Being homeless is so much more than just being without a roof. A roof is quite accessible ... multi-storey carparks, bin shelters, shop doorways all offer roofs but nothing else. Many of those without their own homes have friends kind enough to offer sofas. But if you have no permanent home then your access to a shower, clean clothes, food, a doctor, benefits, an optician, a dentist, education, a pc and mental health or substance abuse counselling is severely curtailed. Trinity provide all these things to as many as 60 individuals a day.

People lose their homes for a variety of reasons ... debt, divorce, domestic violence, drink, drugs, unemployment, abuse. This could happen to any of us. Never assume that a homeless person sits in a shop doorway with a dog on a string. He could be the man in a suit reading the FT in the library.

On lockdown all the homeless in Winchester were housed in hostels and hotels and Trinity provided hundreds of meals a week. Trinity also lost their two biggest revenue generators that pay for the ongoing day to day work of the charity. Going forward the easing of lockdown and the reintroduction of eviction proceedings in late September will cut emergency funding and worsen the problem.

If you think you could help by sponsoring me that would be fantastic. Equally Trinity runs the 120 Club that asks for a monthly donation of £10 - less than a ticket to the flicks.
