The Amy Winehouse Foundation works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. We also aim to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
The foundation’s work focuses on three core areas including:
1. To inform and educate young people about the effects of drug and alcohol misuse, as well as to support those seeking help for their problems and those needing on-going support in their recovery.
2. To provide support for those most vulnerable, including those who are disadvantaged through circumstance or are at high risk of substance misuse.
3. To support the personal development of disadvantaged young people through music.
Today the foundation helps tens of thousands of vulnerable young people across the UK and abroad to overcome drug and alcohol addiction and many other difficult issues, such as; eating disorders and self-harming. We do this by working alongside a wide range of specialist organisations and other charities whose expertise allows us to get help to the young people who need it the most.
But it is your support that also helps us do this, and which lets us make a significant and positive difference that pays tribute to Amy’s remarkable life, talent and beautiful spirit. All proceeds from our merchandise go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help us continue our work.
