The sponsorship and secretariat of the Social Mobility Commission will move to Cabinet Office to be part of the new Equality Hub. This machinery of government change will put the Commission’s work at the heart of Government and ensure our commitment to levelling up and equality of opportunity is the responsibility of all departments. This change is also in line with the recommendation from the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. The change will take effect on 1 April 2021.
