In this episode, Troy talks to Jo Cross and Susan Hoffmann about their submissions to the Royal Commission. Jo explains how cathartic it was to talk about the positive and negative experiences over the years and how she wrote a submission and also had a private session with a Commissioner. Susan explained what motivated her to submit her story to the Royal Commission in writing. She explains how important she felt it was to tell her story of the barriers she faced in getting her child access to an inclusive and ordinary life.
