The Extra Costs Commission focussed on finding market-based initiatives that can alleviate the impact that extra costs have on the lives of disabled people.
Maintaining the value of benefits is absolutely critical, but the Commission believes better functioning markets and increased competition can also play a part in improving services and driving down costs.
Disabled people and their families have considerable spending power, the so-called ‘purple pound’ – but in order to capitalise on this, they need to come together as a collective consumer group. Only then will businesses start to recognise fully the huge opportunity to provide goods and services to this substantial customer base.
