About Us

Our vision is of a free, dynamic and competitive economy in Scotland with educational standards that compare with the best in the world; an affordable and reliable healthcare service; safe streets; and a modern and efficient transport system that gets products to market and people to work.

Reform Scotland is a public policy institute or 'think tank' which was established as a separate Scottish charity, completely independent of any political party or any other organisation and funded by donations from individuals, charitable trusts and corporate organisations. It has an Advisory Board to agree its strategic goals and philosophical approach and a separate Board of Management (Trustees) to oversee its day-to-day running. Both Boards are chaired by Ben Thomson.

Geoff Mawdsley is the Director of Reform Scotland and Alison Payne is the Research Director.

Our aim is to inform and influence the public policy debate in Scotland by:

  • carrying out research using robust and objective research methods
  • publishing reports and research papers on a range of public policy issues
  • issuing briefing notes and regular updates on public policy issues
  • arranging seminars, lectures and other public events on public policy and related topics
