We need your help now to keep them safe and healthy
The Coronavirus is affecting us all. But imagine trying to self-isolate when you are homeless.
People sleeping rough are afraid. Many have underlying health conditions which puts them at greater risk.
Having poor mental health makes it even more difficult to cope.
This time we need to ask you for money, rather than voluntary support or goods.
We’ve had to postpone all our upcoming fundraising events – including The Big Sleep-Out.
To follow Government guidelines on social-distancing, we’ve had to cut back on Volunteer and staffing support.
But homeless people are still in need of food, washing & laundry facilities
And many of those most in need are struggling to access healthcare and counselling.
Homeless and vulnerable people in our community need our support now.
And they will need continuing help in the next few months, as this situation develops.
Will you help Trinity to keep them safe?
What are we doing?
Working with Winchester City Council, St Clement’s NHS Surgery and other Coronavirus taskforce partners, Trinity has developed an emergency action plan.
- We are supporting all rough sleepers who have now been given access to emergency accommodation
- We are visiting people in this accommodation four times a day
- We are delivering them cooked nutritious lunches and breakfast packs
- We are supplying clean bedding, clothing and hygiene products
- We are offering vital human contact and counselling by phone
- And we are delivering crisis support to those who need it
- We are providing food for the Night Shelter and other places supporting rough sleepers
- We are following Government advice to reduce the risk of spreading infection
By making sure each rough-sleeper can be in a safe place and able to self-isolate, we can all support our community through this crisis

How can you help?
£5 – will provide a hot lunch, breakfast pack and evening snack for a person in need

These are just suggestions. Please give what you can.
