Cecil Allen Blanchard (17 April 1929 – 25 October 2008) is a former Australian federal politician.
Born in London, England, he migrated to Australia where he was educated at the Western Australian Institute of Technology; he subsequently returned to England for tertiary education at the University of London and later became a social worker and criminologist, and then as a training and staff development officer.
In 1983, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Labor member for the Division of Moore, defeating sitting Liberal member John Hyde. He held the seat until 1990, when a redistribution made his seat marginally Liberal. He opted to run for reelection, and was defeated by Liberal Paul Filing on a swing of six percent.
