Low Commission Report

The Low Commission is an independent body established by LAG. It is led by cross-bench peer and disability rights campaigner Lord Low.

The Commission has now published its main report, after gathering evidence over the last year. It is calling for urgent reforms to ensure ordinary people can get the help they need to deal with employment, debt, housing and other social welfare law problems.

LAG would like to continue the work of the Commission under the leadership of Lord Low in the build-up to the general election in May 2015. We will be announcing details about this soon.
