St Clements have been providing medical services to Trinity for nearly 10 years.

I remain passionate about helping develop holistic packages of care, especially for complex post-traumatic stress disorder, almost universally experienced by this client group. Creating a therapeutic residential unit will offer real hope that many people’s futures can become brighter.

I have misgivings about some aspects of how our society and government perceives the underprivileged and those with mental health problems and feel not enough support and care is given to these groups so have been immensely impressed with the support Trinity offers. It feels a privilege to continue to develop a service that can have a real impact.

If you have an interest and a passion for what we do at Trinity, we would like to hear from you. Perhaps you could be a future Board member, or an Advocate. Please get in touch initially to

When I look at all I’ve been able to achieve in my life, I give thanks for finding people who encouraged me in what little belief I had in myself. Trinity Winchester is full of such encouraging people. A small number of dedicated staff and volunteers support over 600 vulnerable individuals a year – from rough sleepers to victims of domestic abuse. Anyone can fall on hard times and often what makes the most difference is receiving support and encouragement to turn one’s life around. Trinity supports basic needs for food, shelter and companionship, helps people to change their situations positively through healthcare, advice and counselling and aspire to fulfilling futures including education and employment. Trinity’s modern, purpose-built centre is set in a beautiful garden, filled with wildlife and works of art made by the people who use the services. It’s a wonderful place and one which I am proud to support.

Alan Titchmarsh MBE – Advocate
