I’m Rachel Charlton-Dailey, a freelance journalist and disability activist from North East of England.

My expertise lies in opinion pieces, social commentary and personal essays. I write honestly about life with chronic illness and depression and my ongoing struggle with reproductive health. I am not afraid to speak my mind on disability rights and injustice.

I regularly write for Metro, Stylist, Rooted in Rights and Huffpost UK. My bylines also include The Independent, iNews and Hello Giggles. You can see my full portfolio HERE.

In 2020 I founded The Unwritten, an online publication for disabled people to share their stories without worrying if their lived experience is “newsworthy” or “heartwrenching” enough.

When I’m not writing you can find me down the beach walking my sausage dog Rusty, pouring over tarot cards or curled up with a book somewhere.
