Vision UK is very happy to support the Age UK petition to save free TV licences for older people.
For over a million of the oldest people in our country, television is their main form of company. Right now, that’s under threat.
The BBC has announced they plan to means test TV licences for the over 75s. That means they’ll only be free for people receiving Pension Credit. We believe this change will harm millions of older people who rely on their TV. Together, we must demand the Government takes back responsibility for funding free TV licences.
