The Amy Winehouse Foundation’s mission is supporting and empowering children and young adults in need through music therapy and music education and works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. We aim to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
The Foundation works to accomplish this mission by:
- supporting music therapy and educational programs in universities, hospitals, schools, after school programs, and other institutions and agencies who provide assistance specifically meeting the unmet needs in the psychological, mental and emotional well being of children from disadvantaged families
- offering scholarship grants to deserving students from disadvantaged families for educational opportunities
- identifying specific programs that work to provide prevention programs and tools including rehabilitation for young people with addictive behaviors
