Social affairs journalist and commissioning editor, SocietyGuardian contributor and founder of social affairs blog thesocialissue.com. I'm a former Evening Standard local government & social affairs correspondent with a background in national news reporting, London local papers and trade and consumer mags (Marie Claire, Cosmo and Time Out). I've edited the blog for a social care umbrella group, the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group vodg.org.uk/blog.html. and commissioned and edited pieces for both national newspapers and specialist weekly magazines. I also take on longer-term editorial consultancy projects such as supplements, policy reports, annual reports and media training.
