With great sadness, St John’s Winchester has been forced to close Moorside.

The board of trustees of St John’s Winchester met on Monday 14 June 2021 and with great sadness decided to affirm its proposal to close its Moorside care home following the end of consultations. The decision follows careful consideration by the board of the results of the charity’s consultation exercise with families of Moorside residents, Moorside staff, almshouse residents and staff charity-wide.

It is expected that the home will close in September 2021.
