Key features of the diocese
About the Diocese of Winchester
Our diocesan vision is to ‘Live the Mission of Jesus’ - part of this means that we challenge violence and injustice of all kinds. He teaches us to love one another, to care for our neighbours who are suffering and in need, and to speak up for the voiceless.
The Diocese of Winchester is made up of people from all ages, genders and cultural backgrounds. We are widely rural with bustling cultural hubs geographically spread throughout Hampshire and East Dorset. Modern slavery does not discriminate. It is only by working together that we can hope to achieve the aims of making Hampshire and East Dorset a supportive place for victims and hostile place for perpetrators.
Working with Hampshire Slavery Partnership
The Diocese of Winchester is a member of the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Modern Slavery Partnership. We support its vision to make Hampshire "a supportive place for victims and a hostile place for perpetrators of modern slavery.” We support it by raising awareness of modern slavery, identifying and supporting victims and pursuing perpetrators of modern slavery, all enabled through working in partnership.
