Sandie Keene is President to the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the organisation that is the voice of Adult Social Care in the UK.  Her presidential year (2013/14) spans a period of unprecedented change for social care, with an uncertain economic climate, reduced funding for local government, increasing integration with the health services, new legislation being implemented and more on the way.

As Director of Adult Social Services for Leeds City Council, Sandie heads up a £190 million business that provides a social care service for one of the UK’s largest cities.
