Amy Winehouse's father will meet with British government officials on Thursday (13Oct11) to discuss how his charitable foundation in the tragic star's memory can help drug addicts battle their demons.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was launched last month (14Sep11) to mark what would have been the singer's 28th birthday, will benefit organisations supporting vulnerable young people, including those battling addiction and ill health.
The singer's dad Mitch is spearheading the charity and he's meeting with the U.K.'s Secretary of State for Health Andrew Lansley to discuss how the organisation can help those with drug issues.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Today we are meeting Andrew Lansley the secretary of state. We need to get addicts into recovery quicker."
