Amy’s Yard Live

Blog | Events | News

 

We are so happy to have started our new residency taking place on the second Sunday of each month throughout the Summer at BOHO in Camden.

 

Amy’s Yard Live is a new monthly night at BOHO where Amy’s Yard artist and friends will take to the stage to share an eclectic mix of sounds and styles, showcasing some of the fantastic talent who have graduated from our music programme, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

 

So far the events have been a huge success, and each of our artists have impressed audiences with their individual styles and sounds. The atmosphere has been full of love and support as always, and we are so happy to be able to share this with our friends, family and supporters.

 

 

Beat launches brand new website, thanks to our support

Blog

The UK’s leading charity supporting people with eating disorders, is now better placed to provide information and advice thanks to support from the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Launched to coincide with Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Beat’s brand new website is now able to offer excellent interactive help and support people and families battling anorexia nervosa, bulimia and other related mental health issues.

Sufferers and their families looking for help will be able to access the site by smart phone or tablet, use message boards, take part in live chats and online support groups and search for local support services. This will deliver the charity’s core services 24/7 in a much more interactive way.

What’s more, b-eat.co.uk will also appeal particularly to teens and young adults – a demographic of particular concern to us at the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Amy herself battled with an eating disorder and so her family felt strongly that the work done by Beat was something they would like to support.

In fact, a brand new report from Beat (which shows that eating disorders ‘most frequently become apparent when people are in compulsory education’ and are under 16) chimes with the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s own experiences when delivering its Resilience Programme For Schools across the UK. And like Beat’s own report finds, the Amy Winehouse Foundation believes that the earliest possible interventions are the most effective when it comes to addressing a problem in someone’s life. That’s why this new website – which can quickly reach out to more people, with the most timely information and advice – is such an important tool.
