David Cameron served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from 2010 to 2016, leading Britain’s first Coalition Government in nearly 70 years and, at the 2015 General Election, forming the first majority Conservative Government in the UK for over two decades. He was the UK’s youngest Prime Minister in two centuries. Following hosting the successful London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, David Cameron chaired the 2013 G8 Summit at Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, where he highlighted the global need for fair taxes, increased transparency and open trade. Elected Leader of the Conservative Party in 2005 to reform and modernise a party that had lost three elections in a row, David Cameron successfully remodelled the Conservative Party with a new and distinct modern, compassionate agenda – and that is how he governed. He led the way internationally by passing the UK’s Same Sex Marriage Act; and offered constitutional referenda on Scotland’s place within the United Kingdom, and on the United Kingdom’s place within the European Union. He is Chairman of Patrons at National Citizen Service, the UK’s flagship youth development programme; President of Alzheimer’s Research UK; and recently chaired the LSE-Oxford Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development, under the auspices of the International Growth Centre.

The family live in London and West Oxfordshire. Elected as Conservative MP for Witney in 2001. Became Leader of the Opposition Party in 2005.
