Director: Cliff Bush


Cliff joined SUN 8 years ago, and the Board a year later. He has been involved with Surrey Coalition since its formation in October 2007, and has held the office of Chair during it‘s first year.

Cliff is interested in every area of disability and tries to champion the cause for disabled people in order to give something back for all the support he received when he needed it. He takes a lead role on health issues in particular.

As Chair of the Patients Forum and more recently Surrey Transition LINK Cliff has continually challenged health services in Surrey to make them better for patients.

Cliff also contributes in many other areas of society through his work as a Magistrate, as an independent adviser to Surrey Police, and as a Trustee of Surrey Welfare Rights Unit, to name but a few.

The holder of a First Class Honours Degree in Economics and British Constitution from Trinity College Cambridge, Cliff also is a graduate of the Institute of Purchasing and Supplies, and has a Degree in Law.
