About Lucy Allan MP

I was elected to represent Telford as Telford's Member of Parliament in May 2015.  It is my job to be Telford's voice in Westminster. I have a simple ambition for Telford's future: to make Telford's residents secure and successful.

Being Telford’s MP is a privilege and I am proud to be Telford's first Conservative MP and Shropshire’s second ever female MP.

This site tells you about what I have been doing for Telford as its MP and my campaigns to improve life for everyone here. Telford is a unique town, with a proud history and exciting future; it has an independent spirit and an identity all of its own. I want to ensure that Telford's identity is respected and that Telford is a town we can all be proud of.

I was elected to speak up for Telford in Parliament and to be our voice. In Parliament I focus first and foremost on all things Telford. Social mobility, life chances and narrowing health inequalities are all areas that will make a difference to Telford's future, so Education and Health have been areas on which I have spent the most time. Business, jobs and growth and getting Telford better connected will ensure Telford thrives and are key areas for our future.

Prior to becoming an MP I worked as Chartered Accountant after graduating from Durham University. I later specialised in business turnaround. I have also held a number of community and voluntary roles including serving as a school governor in several schools, as a trustee of a women’s aid charity, as a board member of an NHS trust, and on a pupil referral unit. I also served on fostering and adoption panels. Between 2006 and 2012 I served as a councillor in London.

I am one of five children, originally from Worcestershire. I am married and we have a teenage son.
