The Low Review was launched in July 2011 as an open and independent call for evidence, to complement the Government’s own internal review into the proposed removal of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment, which will replace Disability Living Allowance from disabled people living in state-funded residential care.
Over the 12 week consultation period, the Low Review received over 800 submissions from individuals, disabled people’s organisations, disability charities, residential care providers, and local authorities, and held a number of oral evidence sessions with key witnesses.
