We are pleased to announce the publication of the final report of the Commission. Lord Low would like to thank the trusts and foundations which gave financial support and all those who have contributed to the work of the Commission. Lord Low will be leading some follow-up work to ensure that his report’s recommendations are implemented, please continue to check this site for updates.
Following the Report’s launch, the Commission is proceeding to the next phase of its work to influence policy makers, strengthen its evidence base, and engage the public and stakeholders – the simple objective is to see our recommendations implemented. The Legal Action Group have recruited a Campaigns and Research Manager, to support the Commission in driving this phase forwards.
As part of the second stage of the Low Commission's work we have also published a further follow up report (March 2015).
