Wycombe Homeless Connection

Wycombe Homeless Connection was originally known as the Wycombe Winter Night ShelterNight Shelter, and was set up in 2007 by a group of local Christians to provide emergency care for local homeless people during the winter months from January to March. It accommodated up to 10 homeless guests nightly, providing not only the essentials of a warm shelter, dinner, bed and breakfast but also friendship and practical support with homelessness and other issues. This was a shared venture including 7 churches that provided venues one night a week supported by around 300 volunteers from around 60 churches of all denominations, and volunteers not attached to churches.

Next year there will not be a dormitory style Night Shelter because of the distancing guidance from the Government. 

WHC now runs year round drop-ins and a support service for people re-housed during the shelter or those who are made homeless when the shelter is not running. If you would like to find out more about Wycombe Homeless Connection, volunteer, or make a donation, visit the Wycombe Homeless Connection web site.

Coronavirus Update - WHC services are still open, here to serve and support those who are homeless in our community, and those who are at risk homelessness. WHC think as our economy and society is impacted, we may see more people needing our help. They have extended some services and reduced others. You can read more about this in their Update.
