As a survivor of clergy sexual abuse, Gemma's experience and extensive research led to the formation of Pathways Foundation. The foundation addresses the gaps in the services for victims who have experienced abuse within religious intuitions.
A BIG thank you to Gemma for sharing their inspiring journey on all about books. It was an honour. To learn more about Gemma and Pathways Foundation,
