Switch it on
There are just 10 days left to add your voice to the campaign to save free TV licences for over 75s. A shocking 2 million people living alone - many with only their TV for company - face losing this vital benefit.
In 2017 the Tories made an election promise to keep the free TV licence. They have broken that promise, and delegated the decision back to the BBC. Yet the job of the BBC should be to inform, educate and entertain - not to carry out the dirty work of austerity for this government. That's why the government must now step in and fund the free TV licence.
Please send a message in support of the campaign - backed by Age UK, Independent Age, the National Pensioners' Convention and the Labour Party - and say no to switching off free TV for the older generation. Please sign this petition.
