 In news, updates

TV Licensing has launched an interactive map to connect people struggling to pay the fee with charities that are able to offer support.  The map provides details of over 480 charity partners offering financial advice.  TV Licensing is a trademark of the BBC which is used under license by companies administering and collecting the fee.  A licence costs £150.50 for the year and in 2017 5.4 per cent of callers to National Debtline, run by the Money Advice Trust, had TV licence debt.   Jason Hill, spokesman for TV Licensing, said: “Our new online map at gives details of local money advice partners who are there to listen and help with money advice. There are a number of ways to pay for a TV Licence including weekly cash payments from as little as £6 a week, and we are always happy to offer advice to help people find the payment method best suited to them.” Dennis Hussey, money adviser at National Debtline, said: “Many callers are often afraid or embarrassed to discuss debts with even their family or close friends – I am often the very first person they’ve confided in.”  –
