“… this is filling the media with much-needed good news.”

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

Good news for a bad news world

This is the Good News Post, a refreshing and unique newspaper jam-packed with hope.
With bad news now raging more rampant than ever before to minds and homes, our news professionals train children and young people to find and write positive stories.
These stories are then ‘Posted’ up to our newspaper and to news outlets worldwide. Our stories are regularly featured on local, and regional news, and BBC, ITV, Sky News and more.
In 2019 our some of our 10 to 12 year old reporters were filmed to a global audience of millions as they interviewed the Prime Minister inside Downing Street.
We aim to cheer up the world, inspire hope and happiness, and launch young people into journalism.
The project, inspired by legendary late BBC TV journalist Jill Dando, is spreading fast across England and worldwide.
Launched in 2016 by students in Jill’s inspirational old school in England, the Good News Post has expanded fast with over 100 reporters and 7000 children, trained by professional journalists, getting Good News to the World. This is 24.7 hope in the face of Covid19 and 365 bad news.

Jill began reporting aged 13 at Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. She considered helping people in Africa before rising to become Britain’s most loved journalist. She was tragically murdered in London in 1999 aged 37. Her kindness, passion for good news and journalism lives on with our good news stories in Jill’s mould. Our Good News Post style guide is excellent journalism combined with kindness and a smile.
