A sneak peek inside the episode:

“Every risk is an opportunity to turn somebody’s pain into purpose. You know when people experience adversities in their lives? They feel like they’re doing it on their own. And I think it’s really important for organisations to look at risk and look at concerns, complaints and allegations of harm as an opportunity for that person’s lived experience of adversity to mean something positive for other children and young people.”
