"The Low Commission on the Future of Advice and Legal Support has been established to develop a strategy for access to advice and support on Social Welfare Law in England and Wales.

"For the purposes of its inquiry, the Low Commission considers Social Welfare Law to include: asylum, benefits, community care, debt, education (including special educational needs), employment, housing and immigration.

The Low Commission will be chaired by Lord Colin Low and is made up of eight other Commissioners with expertise in this area. The Low Commission is independent of Government, political parties and advice providers. More information is available on the Commissioners page.

"The Low Commission is funded by the Baring Foundation, Lankelly Chase Foundation, Barrow Cadbury Trust, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, and Trust for London."[1]
