From Blue Peter to Fleabag, you’ll find an outpouring of love for our BBC. It's a British institution as cherished as the NHS. It’s part of who we are. It’s ours.

But since our campaign started in 2015, the BBC has faced massive changes to its funding and structure. This has led to cutbacks and controversial decisions such as the axing of free TV licenses to over 75s, without consultation with viewers and listeners. So our call is simple:

  • We as licence fee payers should have a say and a stake in the Corporation’s direction via the BBC Trust. It’s us, not ministers or opaque committees who should determine its future.
  • The BBC should be accountable to the people who pay for it, and which is independent of politicians and political interference.
  • Licence-fee payers should be made individual members of the BBC Trust, and treated as such, with greater say over how it is run and the service it provides.
