Headliners believe young people have the right to be heard. They empower them to express themselves, tell their stories and change their lives.
“We empower children, young people and young adults to have a voice.
Through our unique multi-media journalism programme children and young people research and produce stories for publication and broadcast about issues that concern them and campaign for change in their communities. Young people from Headliners (UK) have had their stories and campaigns told on BBC, SKY and ITV and many local TV, radio stations and online.
Our learning programme improves the educational and employment prospects for young people, brings young people together from different backgrounds and experiences to improve community relations and helps them make good choices in their own lives. Our young people can gain accreditation in a range of digital media skills, journalism and personal progression.
Young people are involved in decision making across the organisation and four of our Trustees are former participants in the Headliners (UK) programme.”
Headliners run a weekly podcasting & media workshop in C02.
“Our mission is to change the sporting industry. We aim to do this on different levels depending on where our passions lie. Our early-stage learning programs are inclusive all abilities and genders. Based on the brain and the research embarked on by experts in motor skill acquisition. Our elite athlete mentoring provisions help professional athletes find marginal gains to improve their games both on and off the pitch. Our Futures programs are designed to help individuals find employment in sports and we have a freelance media team.
Our diverse team enables us to offer a range of different services and we have more in the pipeline to come.”

We do this by organising matches and tournaments throughout the season and advising on – and wherever possible supporting financially – the regeneration of facilities and provision of suitable coaching and equipment to further the game’s development across the country.
We also provide governance for the sport across all sections of the game and work hard to make this wonderful sport, full of heritage, accessible to as many people as possible – both players on the court and spectators off it.”
