Open Church

The Open Church project was a 28-day pilot scheme to serve people affected by homelessness and crisis which ran in February 2018.

The project is backed and supported by local Churches, the Portsmouth diocese and the Society of St James (a homeless day service). 

We provided overnight accommodation, hot nutritious meals, friendship and support for people who are experiencing homelessness.

This was repeated for two months, January and February, in 2019 and will be run again in February 2020. 

​Street Support

Street Support is a website offering support around homlessness issues and now includes Portsmouth.  A mobile app is also available on Google Play and the iTues App Store. 

Meal provision

Meals for those in need can be found via NextMeal and Provide a Meal.
