Our work

INITIATIVES AND PROGRAMMES TO SUPPORT, INFORM & INSPIRE

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.

We do this through a range of initiatives and programmes. They include: our Resilience Programme for Schools, a groundbreaking drug & alcohol awareness and prevention programme for secondary schools; Amy’s Yard, an intensive music programme which supports the personal development of disadvantaged young people; Amy’s Place, which helps women leaving treatment for addictions to reintegrate into society with the best possible opportunity of sustaining their recovery and building a fulfilling life. It also includes Music Therapy for Children, where those with life-limiting conditions are helped to address important developmental needs through music therapy.

AMY WINEHOUSE’S MUSICAL LEGACY ENABLES CHILDREN TO FIND A ‘NEW VOICE’  
Children at The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy are all set to make sweet music this year thanks to a £7,450 grant from the Amy Winehouse Foundation for music therapy sessions.
Amy’s parents, Mitch Winehouse and Janis Winehouse-Collins, came with other Trustees from the Foundation to the Centre on Wednesday 20 April to present their grant cheque. Mitch and Janis also brought a new keyboard and stand as a personal gift to the children.
MUSIC THERAPY
FOR CHILDREN

A nurturing environment in which young children, their siblings and their parents can enjoy music together, but also engage with qualified therapists.
