LLA | TV Licences for Older People - 10 minute Survey

We would like to invite you to take part in a survey that will help us measure our members’ views on the future funding of TV licences for older people.

The BBC has recently launched a consultation on how to fund the TV licence fee for over 75s. Free TV licences for this age group are currently financed by a government scheme which is due to end in 2020.

LLA believes it is important to hold both the BBC and the government to account for the future of the free TV licence for over 75s. There are still significant numbers of older people living on very low incomes who would genuinely struggle to pay the licence fee if required to do so.

We are eager for our submission to accurately reflect your views. As such, LLA has published a survey designed to understand your experience of the free TV license, and your opinion on possible policies that the BBC should consider.

The survey consists of a brief series of questions, and can be completed in less than 10 minutes. We can assure you that you evidence will be dealt with in confidence, and your details will be anonymised.

Please find the survey online here.
