I’m Rachel Charlton-Dailey, an award-winning health and disability journalist, activist and editor of The Unwritten.

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.

My bylines include Huffpost, BBC, Metro, Healthline and Digital Spy. Here is my full portfolio. I am currently a health and disability expert at Verywell Health, you can view all my stories on my author page.

I am the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Unwritten, an online publication for disabled people to share their stories without worrying if their lived experience is inspiring, newsworthy or heart-wrenching enough. Please click the following for info on pitching and how to support us.

I was overjoyed to be included 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.

When I’m not writing you can probably find me (very slowly) chasing after my sausage dog Rusty or curled up with a book.
