We are proud to announce our support for another local charity, the London Irish Centre, who we have funded to run a one-year Advice Worker post for young people.
Based in Camden Square the London Irish Centre were Amy’s neighbours and she would often stop by to say hello. Back in December the centre invited Mitch to turn on their Christmas lights, and the Foundation has since shown a keen interest in their work. On hearing of the increase in young people seeking advice and support in Camden, with a grant of £21,204 the Foundation will be funding an Advice Worker post which will support young people at risk in accessing suitable housing, employment, social opportunities and dedicated drug & alcohol services when needed.
The Director of Welfare, Jeff Moore, said: “with the support of the Amy Winehouse Foundation we are now able to provide focused services for young people, as part of a larger project aimed at ensuring potential and recent migrants are able to access the information and support they need to ensure they do not place themselves at risk”.
