We are deeply saddened to hear the news of Baroness Veronica Linklater’s death.
A Trustee of Esmée Fairbairn Foundation from 1990 to 2013, she played a critical role in shaping our work across a number of areas. She will particularly be remembered for her leadership on prison reform, which includes chairing our Rethinking Crime and Punishment programme that ran from 2001 to 2008.
Veronica was always kind, helpful and generous with her time. And we’re immensely grateful for her contribution. Our thoughts are with Magnus and family and all those who cared for her.
