    Running Wycombe Winter Night Shelter



WHC helps homeless or at-risk people in High Wycombe, Bucks to rebuild their lives by assisting them not only to find or keep accommodation but also to develop skills to achieve a stable lifestyle. Homelessness has a variety of causes, including family breakdown, unemployment, drug or alcohol abuse and poverty. Its been said we are all two pay packets away from homelessness.

WHC is a community project of local churches. WHCs first initiative was the Wycombe Winter Night Shelter, which provides over 800 bed-nights to around 40 individuals annually. Since then, WHC has added year-round advice and resettlement services.  WHC helps around 400 single homeless adults annually largely those for whom the local authority has little responsibility. During 2015, WHC helped individuals find or keep accommodation on 80 occasions.

In over 2500 one-to-one support meetings each year, WHCs staff and volunteers provide benefits and housing advice, referrals to specialist agencies, advocacy with official bodies, mediation with families and introductions to landlords or therapeutic communities, as well as help with sustaining their tenancy and transitioning into work. They help clients achieve outcomes relating to health, purposeful activity, resolving benefits issues and tackling harmful behaviours.

WHC works in partnership with the local council, probation service, accommodation providers and other specialist agencies. The charity has about 400 committed volunteers who help run its services efficiently.

It costs about £160,000 per year to provide WHCs services. Please help if you can: donations of any size are welcome, but regular donations are especially valuable as they help with planning ahead. 

More information about WHCs work, current events and volunteering opportunities is available on the website.
