Let's get the TV licence reduced for the disabled

This petition had 222 supporters

At the moment the only people that can get discount on the expensive TV licence are those over 75 years or Blind.

But many disabled people who are just about surviving on disability benefits are forced to pay full price for something that many need to have to help pass their time and have contact with the outside world

Many disabled are housebound 75% of their time and can only escape loneliness by watching TV.

It cost £147 for the TV licence once a year and yet the government gives only a bonus of £10 sent out for Christmas every year for each disabled person to help towards food, clothing, heating, electricity & gas bills.

I would like the licence to be free for disabled people living alone and free or a 50% discount for those living with family.

Please help by signing this petition so that something can be done for the disabled about free or discounted TV licence for those that are struggling financially through a disability that cannot get out to work to earn a wage, they have to pay it and sacrifice going without food or heat to cover the cost each year.

If necessary we need to shame the government over this outrage of charging the disabled this costly fee.

We need Theresa May to do something about this for the disabled.

It should be promoted over the social media and to our local MP.

Disability brings hardship with no fault of the disabled person and where the government need to help, they seem more occupied in helping other countries and reducing financial help to our disabled community.

Please get behind this petition and share it to your followers on whatever social media you connect to and keep on constantly sharing the link.  

By doing nothing and believing others are doing it usually means nothing will change.

It only takes a couple of minutes to sign the petition and a cut and paste to put the link on your social network.

Thank you for doing your bit.
