AWF Donates £30,000 To Roundhouse Radio

The Amy Winehouse Foundation was delighted to award a grant of £30,000 towards The Roundhouse’s Radio Roundhouse project recently,the first of what we hope will be many collaborations between ourselves and the iconic London music venue.

Roundhouse Radio is an online radio station broadcast direct from Camden’s historic Roundhouse by a new generation of radio talent, all aged 25 or under.

Each evening, Roundhouse Radio boasts a schedule of eclectic shows. While throughout the day you can hear archived shows and great music.

In 2011 Roundhouse Radio’s hard work and creativity was recognised at the Smart Future Minds Awards, which celebrates ‘ideas and innovation that will shape lives in cities of the future’, following a nomination from BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne.

One of the most recent grants to be awarded is a £30,000 donation to the Roundhouse to support their Roundhouse Radio programme over the next 3 years. The family and Foundation have a particular affinity with the Roundhouse, due to Amy’s close connection with the venue and its location in Camden, and the great work they do using music to inspire and engage young people.

The Roundhouse Radio programme provides access to projects and opportunities for young people aged 16-25 from socio-economically and personally disadvantaged backgrounds. The programme provides young people with transferable interpersonal skills, technical skills, industry knowledge and experience, and has a100% success rate in directing young participants into employment or further related training.

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.
