Violet Keenan is CEO of SDS Forth Valley. She has been active in the care sector since 2004 being involved in the rollout of the training to Local Authorities regarding the implementation of Self Directed Support. Violet is keen to ensure that the rights enshrined within the legislation, that have been a long time in the making, are experienced by the people SDS Forth Valley support.
Violet’s working life started in the Banking sector and after experiencing personal disability continued with a national user led organisation supporting disabled people in becoming employers.
She approaches work from a supportive learning and development perspective with an understanding of the anxieties and concerns people have in being responsible for their own choices.
Violet holds a qualification in Independent Living Advocacy accredited through University of Essex and has the skills to represent people using the legislation. To relax she is a keen motorcyclist.
