Extra Costs Commission

The independent commission will investigate why life costs more for disabled people

Life costs more if you are disabled.  
Buying a wheelchair, higher energy bills - Scope research shows all this adds up to an extra £550 per month.  
An independent commission is looking into the extra costs that disabled people face. 
Headed up by City businessman and fund management industry veteran Robin Hindle Fisher, the commission will find out how to get disabled consumers a better deal and drive down costs.
Other high-profile commissioners include TV presenter and campaigner Sophie Morgan, and Martin Coppack, independent commissioner and head of partnerships at the Financial Conduct Authority.
