I’m Rachel Charlton-Dailey, an award-winning disabled editor, journalist, and activist.
I write mainly about disability and women’s rights and my work regularly features in publications such as Stylist, Glamour, HuffPost and The Guardian. Here is my portfolio.
I guest edited the groundbreaking Disabled Britain: Doing it for Ourselves with The Daily Mirror, and now write a weekly column.
I am also the founding editor of The Unwritten, a platform for disabled people to share their authentic stories . Please click the following for info on pitching and how to support us.
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.
I am a fierce defender of disability rights and I am currently campaigning to get IPSO to introduce guidelines on reporting disability. All info on that is here
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.
