Welcome to St John’s Winchester Charity
The Charity is a Christian foundation which provides sheltered almshouse accommodation, day care and residential and nursing care for needy older people. The Charity’s mission is to maintain the hope, comfort, tranquillity and dignity of all residents and to preserve and foster independence whilst understanding and supporting residents in the face of increasing frailty.
Founded as long ago as 931 we are the largest independent provider of care for older people in Winchester with 81 units of sheltered almshouse accommodation, a day centre, and two nursing homes.
The Chapel re-opens every Thursday 10.00am to 4.00pm from 24th April to 11th September so that tourists and residents of Winchester can drop in and have a look around.
By donating to St John’s Winchester Charity you can help to continue the good work we do for needy older persons of Winchester.
