Gary Cliffe  - Chief Executive

As CEO, Gary works with the Deputy CEO and the wider Strategic team on our strategic direction.

CWVA has such a lot going on and Gary helps make sure our organisation is around the right tables engaging with all key stakeholders. With many important changes going on – for example, how health and social care is provided – it is such an important time for CWVA to make sure the sector’s voice is heard.

Gary is passionate about championing the underdog and loves understanding the framework for how services are delivered to people who need support. He finds being able to influence that agenda really exciting and, although frustrating at sometimes, it’s still something that gets him out of bed. He feels that, if you want to get a sense of satisfaction and the feeling that you might just be in the right place, the community sector is for you.

In his spare time, he loves walking his two young dogs but, to get away from it all, he flies his microlight mainly around the UK, as well as sometimes to Europe. He sees it as a great challenge, but also great fun with a great bunch of people.
