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

My bylines include The Daily Mirror, Verywell Health, Glamour The Guardian and Stylist. My main topics of interest are disability rights and health 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.

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 now write a weekly column for The Mirror on disability rights.

In 2021 I won the Women in Journalism Georgina Henry Award for Digital Innovation at The British Journalism Awards. I was also listed in the 2021 Shaw Trust Disability Power 100, a list of the most influential disabled people in the UK. I am currently nominated for a Press Award for Disabled Britain.

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.
