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 believe in young people. We want them to flourish and be heard. Watch the stories of two young women whose lives have been transformed by the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
“Back then, I really wanted to die and would be upset if I lived. I can genuinely say today that I really want to live and I’d be really upset if I died.”

Amy supported a wide range of charities and organisations, particularly those working with disadvantaged children and young people.
When she tragically passed away on July 23rd 2011, aged only 27, it broke the hearts of not only her family and close friends, but of people across the world.
As part of her legacy and to continue her charitable work, Amy’s family set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation on 14th September that same year, on what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday.
