Gill Vickers

Director of Adult Social Care, Health and Housing, Bracknell Forest Council

I am a social worker by profession and I began my career in a community mental health team in Oxfordshire. Over the past 26 years I have extensive experience in delivering transformation and integration programmes and operational management across Health and Social Care. I have worked in a number of Unitary, County, Metropolitan and London Councils and recent roles include Transformation Director integrating Adult Social Care across Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster, D.A.S.S. in Lambeth and, currently, as Director of Adult Social Care, Health & Housing in Bracknell Forest Council.

I was the London ADASS lead for Mental Health and a member of the multi-agency London Mental Health Transformation Board.

I am currently the Chair of the ADASS South East Commissioning & Market Development Network and ADASS national lead for Civil Contingencies.

I have just recently overseen a CQC Local Area Review for our Social Care System which has a very positive outcome.
