“More than ever it is important that young people know what news is real and what isn’t. Newspapers give you more background and put forward the different side of a story in a way that social media cannot. We find that children may see something on YouTube or Instagram and then go find out more about it in the printed newspaper.

“They don’t see a newspaper as old fashioned, if anything they’re coming back into fashion among our young newsreaders.”
“Children are bombarded with news about Brexit, Climate change, refugees, the border, local politicians. They need to be able to understand what is real news and what is fake. In the era of Donald Trump where communications are delivered in 280 characters it is useful that young people see the truth behind the news.”
