About

The Good News Post is a unique world newspaper aiming to help people to be positive and happier.

Our passion is good news, positivity and helping charities, mental health campaigns and helping people to feel happier, have fun to enjoy their lives.

We find, write and publish positive news, articles, features and research to help people feel better and live life to the full.

We partner with a expanding list of Mental health Charities including Wellspring Counselling and In Charley’s Memory (ICM).

ICM set up in 2015 after the death of Charley, 18, a former student of The King Alfred School Academy (TKASA). It has since helped thousands of young people in his memory.

The Good News Post aims to support mental health by promoting positive minds, tips on enjoying life, and by backing and creating mental health campaigns

Our newspaper is also aiming to train up 1 million young ‘Jill Dando’ journalists to help in getting positive news out of communities across the world and into the Media.

The Good News Post partners with other professional journalists to train up the expanding ‘army’ of Jill Dando News reporters aged 7 to 18. We help young people to launch out into careers with roles, opportunities to interview top leaders, and have helped create a Mental Health Correspondent and a Disabilities Correspondent.

Young reporters are encouraged to follow in the footsteps of BBC TV legend Jill Dando with positivity, enthusiasm, authenticity, humility, kindness, empathy and ambition to become the best in their chosen fields.

Alex Crowther became the first graduate in 2017 and since then hundreds worldwide have been through the project.

The Post was formed in 2016 to gather positive good news from across the world.

In 2017 Jill Dando News was created out of Jill’s former school Worle School in The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT).

Our newspaper gathers up professional journalists, editors, print, radio and TV train up the Jill Dando journalists who are aged 7 to 18.

Real life stories to cheer people up

They are regularly trained by professional journalists from BBC including Fiona Bruce, ITV, Sky News, local, regional and national newspapers. Jill’s older brother, Nigel Dando has helped out since the beginning with his 48 years of journalism experience.
