Amy Winehouse Foundation Donates £21,000 To The London Irish Centre

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”.

About the Amy Winehouse Foundation

In Amy’s memory, we work to inspire children and young people to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they can flourish.

Our work is inspired by Amy’s spirit, her love of children and the challenges that she faced in her own life.

Today, the Amy Winehouse Foundation helps thousands of young people to feel supported and informed so that they are better able to manage their emotional wellbeing and make informed choices around things that can affect their lives.

We’re able to do this because of the support we receive from people like you. Anyone who believes in young people can become a part of our work and Amy’s legacy. By supporting our work, you will help them to transform their lives, flourish and be heard.
