Positive News

Inspiration for a change

Positive News is the world’s first publication dedicated to reporting positive developments. We take a solution-focused perspective on the challenges facing society.

Through compelling and rigorous journalism, we aim to inform, inspire and empower our readers, while helping create a more balanced and constructive media.

Community supported media

In July 2015, Positive News became the first global media cooperative financed through crowdfunding. It is now owned by its readers, supporters and journalists. Click here for more information.

Positive News relies on the financial support of its co-owners and members.


Working for social benefit

Positive News is published by Positive News Publishing Ltd, a not-for-profit social enterprise, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Positive News Limited, a community benefit society. It is also supported by Positive News Trust, a registered charity.

Positive News brings attention to positive responses to social challenges, benefits peoples mental health and wellbeing, and engages people in society by presenting news in a way that empowers people to respond constructively to issues, rather than being left feeling hopeless.
