AGE UK says: “Save Free TV for Older People”

For over a million of our oldest citizens the TV is their constant companion and window on the world. And now it’s under threat.

The BBC is considering removing free TV licences from the over-75s. But this is really the Government’s doing: they pushed the scheme onto the BBC without asking any of us what we think or providing the funding to sustain it.

Together, we must demand the Government takes back responsibility for funding free TV licences for everyone over 75.

TUC LESE Pensioners’ Network Annual Seminar

TUC London, East and South East Pensioners’ Network Annual Seminar: Isolation and Loneliness

The LESE Pensioners’ Network 2019 Seminar will have guest speakers and Q&A sessions on loneliness and isolation in older age. Much of this is not understood, especially outside of the older community. This results in poor addressing of the issues and lack of effective solutions. We also aim to address digital isolation, whereby older folk without access to modern technologies lose out on price advantage and communication. The Seminar will address the nature of the issue, causal factors and which solutions may be available. Under imposed ‘austerity’, the key issue is resource – the will is there, the means to apply it less so.
This Seminar is open to all parties either aware of the issue or willing to address it in practical terms. Guest speakers will outline conventional and perhaps alternative options to relieve loneliness and isolation among older generations. We hope to identify examples of best local practice which can be repeated elsewhere.
The day aims to equip Seminar delegates to share ideas and/or action plans to take to their communities. We will not have all the answers but seek to open previously-invisible doors towards them.
