Help us fight to keep TV free for all older people

The BBC has announced plans to means test TV licences for the over 75s. It's not the answer - and many of the most in need will miss out. Together, we must tell the Government to keep TV free for everyone over 75.

Sign our petition

We're here for every older person.
Online, at the end of the phone, in the local community,
to open doors and give everyone a place to turn to.
