Inspiration for a change
Positive News is the world’s first positive newspaper. We report on positive developments from across the world and take a solution-focused perspective on the challenges facing society.
We aim to inform, inspire and empower our readers, while helping create a more balanced and constructive media.
About the print newspaper

Community supported media
Positive News relies on the financial support of its members, who receive the paper delivered to their doors.
As well as copies sent to members, Positive News is also distributed by a unique grassroots network of readers and supporters, to outlets across the UK where the newspaper is picked up free of charge by the public.
Working for social and environmental benefit
Positive News is published by Positive News Publishing Ltd, a not-for-profit social enterprise, with support from Positive News Trust, a registered charity.
By publishing news relating to initiatives that are creating positive social and environmental change, Positive News magnifies their benefits. By drawing attention to such initiatives, we inspire and facilitate their development, expansion and replication.
Positive News also brings direct social benefit through its impact on people’s mental health. Readers inform us of how our content moves them from despair to hope and from disempowerment to an understanding that they can change their perspective and take action to positively influence their own and others’ lives. Positive News also engages people in society because it presents news in a way that enables people to respond constructively to issues.
Positive News was founded in 1993 by Shauna Crockett-Burrows.
