Louise Casey is one of a kind. A uniquely gifted public servant, she has been a fearless champion of the most vulnerable people in society at the highest level. In this deeply personal interview, Louise recalls her experience of helping to tackle some of the UK's toughest social problems and how she's had to continually deliver uncomfortable truths to the most powerful people in the country. Louise is also hilarious and the interview is peppered with fantastic behind-the-scenes stories.
This gripping discussion covers everything: the hard lessons Louise learned in that first role as Homelessness Czar, the scale of the social problems we face as a country and some frank personal reflections about how the tabloids wrote about her. Louise's reflections on the Rotherham paedophile scandal are particularly shocking, so be warned that the details are severe.
