Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to dramatically alter our normal operations since the lockdown commenced in March. We are gradually re-introducing activities but only as and when it is safe to do so. We will keep you posted so please do watch this space!

We have a small core of staff who are working to support our current cohort of young people and their families using different forms of electronic communication and social media. If you have an urgent query, please send us an email and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your interest in SHINE – please do look through the rest of the website as there is some really useful information which you might find helpful if you’re a young person or a parent/carer. There are sections on nutrition and healthy eating, how to achieve an active lifestyle and also advice around emotional wellbeing. One section is aimed specifically at parents which might be particularly helpful.

For further information, please contact kath@shinehealthacademy.org.uk



Welcome to our updated website and thank you for visiting us. We hope we have provided you with information that will educate, support, guide, and hopefully show the fun element of a very serious problem around unhealthy weight that now affects over 1 million young people in the UK.

Browse the site and feel free to download the information. Learn from the real experiences of the young people who use our services and let us know your opinion. Help us to expand the website to reach bigger audiences and provide us with your own comments and experiences which can help and support others. So what you waiting for – get browsing!
