Streetlytes supports the poor and homeless. We offer kind and practical support to our homeless friends in need, guiding them back onto the road to recovery. Many of our own volunteers have faced these issues themselves and therefore understand fully the needs of our clients.
We currently operate evening drop-in centres in Westminster and Shepherds Bush in London, which offer a three course meal, entertainment and friendship to anyone homeless or vulnerably housed. You can find addresses and opening times here.
We also offer free workshops within schools, prisons and churches to share our personal experience of homelessness and addiction, with the aim of raising awareness of the issues facing some of the most vulnerable within communities. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like us to arrange a workshop for you.
Streetlytes would achieve nothing if it weren't for the support of some extraordinary people.Two such people were Tara and Pippa Darlington, two wonderful young women who gave their time and support to this charity with no expectation of anything in return.
There aren't words to express how distraught everyone at Streetlytes is following the tragic loss of these vibrant and generous girls. They will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.
Equally there aren't words to express how humbled we are that the girls' family has, in the midst of such deep sorrow, sought to continue the girls work. Their family has set up a JustGiving page and it has already raised an astonishing amount.
This charity relies upon the humanity and generosity of spirit shown by the girls, and now their family to continue to help people in desperate need of support and we cannot possibly thank them enough.
Thank you very much for taking the time to find out about Streetlytes– we really do appreciate your time and support. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to contribute in any way at all. In the meantime, please join our on line community so we can keep you in touch with what we are up to.
Thank you for visiting our website.
With love from the team at Streetlytes

Being part of a community is important to us, and that’s why we are so pleased to be donating food leftover at the end of the day to Streetlytes, who provide a fantastic drop in centre near our Notting Hill shop, and will continue to support them as they grow.

The Lords Group philosophy is based on the fundamental belief that being a strong part of the local community is essential to success. This is evidenced in the way they maintain links with local businesses and seek to support local initiatives and causes.
Over the years Lords have supported a number of charities as well as providing scholarships, and the partnership between Lords and Steetlytes is an obvious one. The first Lords retail unit was established in Westbourne Grove, --- years ago and the business has become an “establishment” itself within the community. Over the years Lords has seen the area develop and progress, and the staff themselves identified Streetlytes and selected it as their charity of choice.
As CEO Shanker Patel says, “Any charity that works towards restoring hope to the destitute by helping them with their immediate needs plus supplying them with opportunities to better their situation in the future will always have our backing” and the Lords Group is very proud to be associated with the Streetlytes charity to help them in achieving these goals.
