Rhythms of Life is a London homeless charity. Every day, 365 days of the year, our amazing volunteers hit London’s streets to help those in need. We currently operate in Islington, Camden and Westminster, providing meals, clothes, toiletries, sleeping bags, and, most importantly, a friendly ear whenever needed. Our proactive approach allows us to tailor our services to the real needs of the homeless.

Rhythms of Life was founded in 2008 by Andrew Faris. A former rough-sleeper of 6 years, he strongly felt that his fellow friends needed help, and, most importantly, that this help could be provided more effectively by someone who deeply understood their daily struggles and needs.

As a result of Andrew’s perseverance and commitment, and with the invaluable help of our partners and volunteers, Rhythms of Life has been able to feed London’s rough-sleepers every day for the past ten years.

The food that we provide is donated by our charity partners, who include: Eat, M&S, Sainsbury’s and Whole Foods. As firm believers in the motto ‘lead by example’, we strive to promote sustainability not only by collecting surplus ready prepared food but also by cooking from raw ingredients whenever possible in order to avoid food waste. To date, Rhythms of Life has prevented over 26,000 tonnes of food from being wasted.

Although our main aim is to provide healthy and nutritious meals, toiletries, clothing and sleeping bags to London’s homeless, we also offer classes on literacy, I.T. and life skills. We firmly believe that everyone deserves a second chance to rebuild their lives.

We are currently based at 158-160 Pentonville Road, London N1 9JL, just as short walk from Kings Cross and Angel stations.
