Linda Sanders joined the City of Wolverhampton Council in January 2015 as Strategic Director People, a portfolio which includes the statutory Director for Children’s and Adults Services as well as Public Health and Community Safety. Linda is also the national ADASS Telecare Lead.
She has 12 years’ experience as a Corporate Director in both the West Midlands and London with nearly 40 years’ experience of social services in local government.
She started her career in social work in Coventry, undertaking a CQSW and MA at Warwick University.
Linda is leading transformation programmes for Children’s and Adults Services in the City of Wolverhampton focussing on promoting independence and strengthening families.
Integral to an integrated and preventative health and social care offer is the enabling of adults with support needs to remain safely at home. The availability of an effective Telecare/Assistive technology offer tailored to individual need is in my view at the heart of any transformation programme of adult social care.
