As many of you are already aware, at the Amy Winehouse Foundation we think big when it comes to charities. From homeless shelters to community projects, the range of grants and support we provide is varied.
Last year, we funded the London Irish Centre, based in Camden Square this centre has grown to meet the interests of the ever-growing Irish community and residents of Camden. Aimed at engaging the community, they provide guidance and support with alcohol and drug misuse, physical and mental health, family and relationships and the importance of budgeting finances.
When we were told about the increase of young people coming to the centre to seek support, we granted the centre with £21,204 to fund an Advice Worker to support young people at a risk, having trouble accessing suitable housing, employment, social opportunities and dedicated drug & alcohol services when needed.
Another charity that we are proud to have supported is the LauraLynn Children’s Hospice. As the first children’s hospice in Ireland, they care for children with life limiting conditions and their families. Their team of carers aim to provide the highest care of the children. Last year we presented them with €25000, which was raised through the Euro equivalent of £1 from every copy of Amy’s new album ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ sold in Ireland.
Having funded both charities, we decided to introduce the two organisations, as they are both Irish and doing great work in supporting disadvantaged young people, and we are proud to be supporting them in an event called the BIG Night Out.
