We at Demos were devastated to hear of the death of our good friend and former Trustee, Kieran Brett, who passed away at the weekend after a short illness.

Kieran was a kind and generous man, dedicated to public service and the value that good government can bring to society. He served as a Trustee at Demos from 2013 until 2017, and this year was working with us to develop a new programme of work supporting local government to transform its impact and improve lives.

On behalf of all the Trustees and staff of Demos, thank you Kieran. You will be sorely missed and long remembered by us all.
