Campaign with older people

We need you

Help us campaign to make the UK a better place to grow older.

We campaign for a fairer deal for older people in the UK. That means saving free TV licences for the most in need, or trying to prevent long, expensive and painful journeys to hospital.

We make the Government listen up and hear the voice of a generation who can't always speak as loudly as everyone else.

But we can only continue to change things with your help.

If you've only got 2 minutes...

For over a million of the oldest people in our country, television is their main form of company. Right now, that's under threat. Sign our petition to save free TV for older people.

Like many older people, my 94-year-old father-in-law relies on his TV for company, entertainment and to stay connected with the outside world. To pay for a licence would be a real struggle for him. Supporting the Age UK campaign to retain free TV licences for the over 75s – and passing it onto my friends – was such a quick and simple action for me to take.
