I am a freelance journalist

... specialising in child welfare, covering the care system, housing policy, education and online safety

I look for the people with the most compelling arguments on how our society could better serve children and their families, and turn their ideas into balanced and thoughtful reads

I believe in the power of stories and consider it a privilege to listen to the experience of others

And so I take this seriously, handling every interview with sensitivity and transparency and contributing to publications that prize constructive, explorative journalism, including Prospect, The Independent and the Financial Times

Lastly I’m thorough. I trained as a sub-editor so my copy is always clean, factually accurate and delivered on time.

That’s me, in a nutshell. To read more of my work please head to my features page, or get in touch

    Cherry is a reliable and intuitive journalist. She files clean, engaging copy to deadline and takes direction very well. A pleasure to work with.
