About us

Our Scottish Future was set up by the Rt Hon. Gordon Brown to campaign for positive and radical change in Scotland, accelerated by a reformed UK with the values of solidarity, empathy, reciprocity, and co-operation at its heart. 

We reject both ‘No Change Unionism’ and ‘No Compromise Nationalism’ as false choices, and want to work with people from all political backgrounds and none across Scotland to achieve the progress we all deserve.

Our work

We campaign for a better Scotland in a changed Britain.

We believe that the best way to do this is by talking to and listening to people – whether or not they agree with us. We also produce reports and research on how better co-operation can improve life in Scotland, and polling on what the Scottish public think.

Join our team

We are looking to hire a policy researcher who can work on a range of short- and medium-duration projects in our focus areas of the Scottish Economy, Climate Change, Poverty, Education, and Healthcare – highlighting in particular the value that enhanced co-operation between the Scottish and UK governments could bring to the Scottish people.

For the Scotland we deserve

At Our Scottish Future, we believe Scotland can do better.


We can have a better politics than one of constant division and suspicion.

We can to do better on protecting our NHS, fighting poverty and inequality, and on saving our shared environment.


And we can do better by better cooperation, because not only are we united with our fellow Scots in looking for something better, but with people across the UK.


Join us, and help us build a positive, progressive and patriotic movement for a better Scotland in a reformed UK.

We will only achieve our goals if we work together

COP26 demonstrated once again that we cannot make change happen in the world without making it together. That’s why we’re calling for a COP UK to:

  • Agree common regulatory pathways
  • Distribute resources fairly, to support a fair transition across the UK
  • Bring together devolved authorities and nations, so that we can commit individually and collectively to carbon targets

Add your name and back our call for a COP UK.
