Working in partnership with New Images Youth and Community Centre, Mind Body Balance Academy, Youth Fed and Winsford Care Community (and funded by Active Cheshire through Sport England), The Spotlight Project is an initiative for young people aged 11-18 in Winsford to get active to improve their mental health and well-being. Placing the Spotlight on what the YOUNG PEOPLE like to do, the initiative encourages this age group to experience new things whilst building their confidence and providing the opportunity to engage with others from the local area.

The Spotlight Project began in late 2019 and formed part of the Cultural Regeneration Programme for Winsford Town Centre. Bringing together teens and pre-teens at New Images Youth Centre, the project saw ages 11+ engage with dance and creative workshops, culminating in a performance at the Winsford Creates Festival.

For 2022, The Spotlight Project will provide movement sessions (dance and boxing fitness) for all abilities, including complete beginners. The aim of the sessions is to give ages 11-18 years old the opportunity to get moving and active in a friendly, non-judgemental and no-pressure environment, with members of Youth Fed also present to assist with mental well-being when necessary.
