The CEO of Oxfordshire Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC), Lisa Ward joins Tracey Rosenfeld-Schueler and Rev Kate Harford for an interfaith discussion about the role of faith in protecting women and girls from violence, and in perpetuating violence.

Her key area of research and practice is in ensuring trauma informed support pathways for survivors. She is an alumna of Oxford Brookes.
