My themes as policy officer were: all forms of domestic violence, honour related violence, diversity, and victimhood all within the Steunpunt Algemeen Welzijnswerk. In addition, I am actively engaged in project work, particularly in the communications and publications field. I am chief editor of Handboek Familiaal Geweld and a member of the Council for Journalism. In 2016 I also worked on a project for Steunpunt Jeugdhulp on social work for youngsters as members of ethnic minorities.

In 2017 I was on the steering group for the VOICE project against sexual abuse in sports and I spoke about this in the Flemish Parliament. Previously I worked on the theme of homelessness. I was a co-founder of the Belgian Homeless Cup. In 2016 I actively supported FEANTSA to organise their annual conference in Brussels. I spoke at a seminar by the Children’s Rights Commissioner about the impact of domestic abuse on children and the role this plays as a pathway into homelessness.
