Organisation aims / mission / values
- Rhythms of Life is a homelessness charity which operates in Central London.
- We feed, educate and clothe London’s homeless. Every night of the year, our volunteers distribute meals, clothing and personal hygiene supplies to rough sleepers. We also help rough sleepers rebuild their lives by teaching literacy, numeracy and employability skills.
- Andrew Faris, a former rough sleeper, founded Rhythms of Life in 2008. With help from our partners and volunteers, we have fed the homeless every day of the year for eleven years. Over 90% of our food is gifted to us; we promote sustainability by collecting surplus food, ensuring these meals are edible, and then distributing them to our service users.
How we deliver these aimsRhythms of Life is a homeless charity in central London, providing food, but also clothing, hygiene supplies as well as life skill classes 365 days a year. Founded in 2008 by Andrew Faris, a former rough sleeper, Rhythms of Life has served over 500,000 meals to London’s homeless. Thanks to our individual and corporate benefactors we are able to supply meals to the homeless every day of the year. We depend on donated food. Some of our key partners already include enterprises such as Whole Foods, Sainsbury's, Co-Op, and Lush to name a few. Through these partnerships we help save over 300 kilos of food from going to waste per annum, and instead put it to good use by helping feed the homeless community.
Who benefits from our workOur homeless friends, individual and corporate benefactors.
