My favourite takeaway is definitely an Eat of Eden platter. Even though I’m not vegan, it’s just so tasty and one of the only takeaways I still enjoy the next day 🧆

I like to leave the TV on pretty much all the time as like background noise, or playing really loud music. I really like reality TV and Bad Bunny specifically 📺

What do you love most about working with women and young people? ✨

How completely hilarious they are, and how their politics are all so much better than mine were when I was their age. It’s so exciting to see that the future truly is in better hands 🙌

How do you de-stress? 🧘

I have been going on walks and learning meditation and also dancing wherever possible! 🚶🏽‍♀️

What do you love most about working with women and young people? ✨

The amazing relationships we form along the way, creating a trusted relationship at the start of case work creates a foundation for the work and I really enjoy the journey – the catch ups over the phone and the text conversations really lighten up my day. I also enjoy creating care packages and ordering things they need or that can help with their selfcare 💞

Zoe - Gender Based Violence Prevention Worker

What's your fave takeaway? 🍕

If they delivered to my area it would be Nando’s! But they don’t so it’s probably pizza! Oh, and chocolate milkshakes from McDonald’s! 😋

How do you de-stress? 🧘

I’ve spent a LOT of time watching TV! But I’ve also walked, slept more, practiced yoga in my living room and danced! Looking after my home has brought me so much happiness and comfort, grateful for it every day 😌

What do you love most about working with women and young people? ✨

Young people have so much insight, they speak the truth and share a unique perspective. If young people ran the world, we would live in a much fairer society. Their resilience is astonishing, working alongside them is a pleasure & a privilege 🙌🏻
