The tragic passing of Amy Winehouse on 23rd July 2011, aged just 27, left not only her family and close friends heart broken, but had a huge impact on people all over the world. Amy and her music has touched the lives of millions across the globe.
Amy’s family launched the Amy Winehouse Foundation on September 14th 2011, on what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation has been set up in Amy’s memory to support charitable activities in both the UK and abroad that provide help, support or care for young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, ﬁnancial disadvantage or addiction.
It is the mission of the Foundation to assist as many of those affected as possible by supporting and funding identiﬁed and reputable charitable organisations that tirelessly carry out remarkable and professional work in these areas. This work will not only make a signiﬁcant and positive difference for those it supports, but will also pay tribute to Amy’s remarkable life, talent and beautiful spirit.
