Mitch Winehouse, father of the late and great Amy Winehouse, is planning on setting up a residential drug rehabilitation center in honor of his daughter.

Today he won the backing of MP’s for his campaign to bring to light the holes in treatment services in Britain.

Mr. Winehouse wants to help those who can not afford private treatment.

He said, “I want to involve myself in things that would have been important to Amy … that is why we are going to be setting up the Amy Winehouse Foundation. This isn’t only important to me, this is important to our whole country.”

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London flat on July 23 and her parents are still awaiting the results of her toxicology test to determine the cause of death.
