Women’s Refuge TV Licence campaign
Catherine Redfern // 25 August 2009
Did you know that:
While luxury hotels and others get a TV licence discount for multiple sets on their premises, refuges providing shelter and support for victims of domestic abuse are charged the full price for each of their licences.
Individual refuges are spending hundreds or even thousands of pounds on TV licences that should be spent on essential services for abused women.
Sign the petition to support changes to the TV licence concession scheme and call for a review of licence fee enforcement practices.
Wow, I never knew that… What a great campaign from the Liberal Democrats.
