Extra Costs Commission

For years, politicians have talked about a cost of living crisis in Britain. Soaring energy bills, extortionate rent repayments and the growing cost of the weekly shop have left many walking a financial tightrope.

For many disabled people and their families, the cost of leading an independent life poses a much greater challenge altogether.

In the coming months, I will be pressing the Government to reduce the burden of extra costs on disabled people. I have written more about this issue in the Ham and High, which can be read here.
