Rachael Swancott lives in Shrewsbury in Shropshire with her fiancé Nicola. She is a lifelong Quaker and experienced facilitator. She works for a medium sized NGO, working with farmers in nine countries across Africa focussing on different country specific issues, e.g. gender equality and climate change. Rachael, like many, feels very overwhelmed by the ‘state of the world’ at the moment and is very much looking forward to working with Friends to continue the work towards effective allyship.
