Need Help?

We know that life can be tough sometimes. And while there a lot of people and organisations who can help you as you struggle with difficult thoughts, feelings and situations, it can be difficult to know where to start looking.

At the Amy Winehouse Foundation we offer support directly through our programmes, but we also work alongside different charities and groups who offer specialist support on a wide range of issues. On this page you can find a list of organisations that we support and endorse the work of.
