Lottery cash for the young Headliners

Headliners is the new name for youth news charity Children's Express, which has rebranded and relaunched in recognition of a growing number of older teenage members.

The changes come at a time of expansion for the charity, which has just secured a £900,000 Lottery grant in order to move into the north-west, West Midlands and the south-east of England.

Director Fiona Wyton said: "We work with a wide range of young people, some who felt uncomfortable with the term ‘Children'. "We also wanted to move away from sounding like a print-based organisation as we have moved into creating more audio/visual and new media output."

Headlines is a charity which takes children aged between eight and nineteen who have been expelled from school and gives them journalism training producing stories for the website www.headliners.org.
