Kirsten HedlandPamela Reid: Director

Pamela Reid is a Director based in our Glasgow office, working across the UK. She has worked in economic and social research and consultancy over 25 years. Pam started working with ekosgen in 2007 and her experience spans a wide range of subject areas including children, families and young people, inequalities, health and social care, skills and learning, partnership working, employability, workforce planning, social enterprise development and business support. She is skilled at undertaking evaluations, strategic reviews, preparing evidence based briefings and reports, policy development, options appraisals, impact assessments, organisational development and service planning.

She leads some of our large scale multi-annual projects for example, a three year study for the DCLG to assess the impact of a pilot to test taking outcomes based payments approach to providing homelessness services. It involved detailed analysis of quantitative and qualitative data, focus groups and interviews with service delivery partners, interviews with beneficiaries and preparing and presenting papers to the cross-departmental Advisory Board.

Pam directed a study for the Carnegie Trust that examined innovative approaches across the UK to tackling “incivilities”. The ekosgen team produced case study materials that have been used to inform policy and practice.  She led the team that evaluated the impact of Sistema Scotland’s Big Noise Children’s Orchestra in the Raploch in Stirling and the evidence assisted the organisation to secure additional funding and expand to other areas.
