Your voice matters in the fight to keep TV free
For over a million of the oldest people in our country, television is their main form of compa-ny. Right now, that’s under threat. We must tell the BBC why keeping TV free matters.The BBC is considering removing the right to free TV licences for the over 75s. If this is al-lowed to happen, it’s the most vulnerable people in our society who’ll suffer.
Share your concerns with the BBC now
The BBC has asked the public what we think about scrapping free TV licences for the over 75s. This is our chance to make our voice heard for older people who rely on TV for enter-tainment and companionship.
We’re urging older people and their friends, families and grandchildren to share their con-cerns on how removing free TV licences would affect their lives.
