Cllr Abu Sultan
Borough Councillor for Cauldwell
Mobile: 07732 193 752

Abu was elected to Bedford Borough Council in 2019. He is delighted to represent the local area where he has deep-rooted connections for over thirty years. Abu is a member and vice-chair of the Planning Committee. Since being elected, he has worked passionately with his fellow ward councillor to make Cauldwell the best place to work and live.


A tireless campaigner, Abu is committed to the local community. He has been incredibly supportive and helpful, and he has been vigorous in his efforts to engage those most affected by callous, austerity-driven politics.


Abu was a key member of the organizing committee of 'Save Our Riverbank Ward,' fighting to retain essential children's services at Bedford Hospital. The fight was successful, and services were reinstated.


In previous years, Abu was a very active volunteer for various causes, including;

  • serving as a Special Constable with Bedfordshire police

  • Queen’s Park Community Orchard

  • Oxfam

  • Cancer Research UK. Unfortunately


Abu had to give up his volunteering activities due to cancer in early 2018. Successful treatments and surgery have enabled him to restart his volunteering activities, most notably with Macmillan.


Abu is passionate and supportive of Bedford Hospital and all who work or volunteer for it, and he has been involved in various campaigns to save key services.


Abu says, “I believe passionately in our party’s values of equality, tolerance, community, and solidarity. I want to help our Labour councillors continue to put those values into action in Cauldwell ward and Bedford borough as a whole. I want to be your representative because I want to achieve social justice and a better start in life for the poorest in society. Irrespective of schooling or background, everyone can become the best. In a fair society, that means affordable social and private housing, thriving schools, local access to healthcare, employment, and good transport links. A decent living for all, whether self-employed, young or elderly, or families."


Abu is a member of Unite the Union and Usdaw the Union and has helped to organize many campaigns.
