Andrea Leadsom is the Conservative Member of Parliament for South Northamptonshire, a post to which she was elected in 2010 following a 25-year career in the financial sector.

In Parliament and beyond, Andrea has campaigned on her three areas of personal interest: reform of the European Union in her work as co-founder of the Fresh Start Project; reform of the banking system, particularly with regards to increasing competition and removing barriers to entry through full account number portability; establishing a national network of parent-infant psychotherapeutic support for families and their newborn babies through a new charity, PIP UK.
