I’m Rachel Charlton-Dailey, an award-winning editor, journalist, and activist.

My bylines include Verywell Health, The Daily Mirror, The Guardian, Stylist, and The Independent. My main topics of interest are health and disability but I also love writing about everything from feminism to TV. Here is my portfolio.

I am the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Unwritten. Please click the following for info on pitching and how to support us.

In 2021 I was listed in the 2021 Shaw Trust Disability Power 100, a list of the most influential disabled people in the UK. I am also the 2021 winner of the Women in Journalism Georgina Henry Award for Digital Innovation.

I was proud to guest edit Disabled Britain: Doing it for Ourselves with The Daily Mirror, a series of features highlighting the reality of disabled life, written by disabled people. I’m also currently a columnist at The Mirror.

As well as writing, I also offer consultancy, training and speaking, to help further educate and inform about disability. Contact me if you’d like to work with me.
