Trudy Harrison MP

A proud, born and raised West Cumbrian is how Trudy would like to be known. Upon leaving Wyndham Comprehensive Trudy started her career at Sellafield working across site in a variety of roles. The birth of her first daughter, Gabrielle, in 1998 prompted a career in childcare which led to voluntary roles at her children’s school, Captain Shaw’s in Bootle. The decline of village life in Bootle motivated Trudy’s interest in local politics and prior to her election as Copeland’s first female MP in February 2017, worked on sustainable community projects in her home village. 

Her parliamentary roles have included being a member of the Education Select Committee, Co-Chair of the Apprenticeship Delivery Board, member of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Nuclear Energy, Autism, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Trudy has also acted as Private Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, Department for Transport, Department for Education and most recently to the Prime Minister.
