What we do

The Low Review was set up in July 2011 in order to provide a public review to complement the Government’s own internal review into the removal of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment from disabled people living in residential care. The Low review will make recommendations on the funding and responsibility for personal mobility in state funded residential care.

The review remit is set out in the Terms of Reference. Specifically, it has been asked to examine and provide deliverable recommendations on:

  • how the mobility component of DLA is being used by care home residents and impact of loss of benefit
  • funding arrangements for  personal mobility needs between local authorities and care home providers
  • responsibilities of care home providers in relation to the personal mobility needs of residents
