The SMC is an independent statutory body (an organisation created by an Act of Parliament). In line with the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016, it is a continuation of the body previously called the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission.

The commission is comprised of a chair and commissioners who are appointed by a public appointments process. A small secretariat, based in London, supports the SMC.
