Digital TV Switchover

Support for groups from Age UK Notts

Television viewers in recent weeks cannot have failed to notice the messages about the upcoming switch to digital TV. Analogue TV signals will be turned off and Freeview services boosted to reach all areas. After switchover, virtually all homes will be able to receive digital TV free via an aerial.

Switchover in the Central TV region started at the end of March and continues until September 2011. Local charity Age UK Notts is working across Nottinghamshire to raise awareness of switchover and the Switchover Help Scheme, offering advice and information to those people who might need a little extra support getting ready, such as:

  • Older people 
  • People who are socially isolated 
  • People with sensory, mobility or dexterity impairments 
  • People who have mental health conditions 
  • People with English as a second language 
  • People with learning difficulties

 Age UK Notts can provide free briefing sessions to staff and volunteers working within voluntary and community sector organisations that work with any of the groups above. We can also give talks, deliver presentations or hold advice sessions. 

Grants are available if your group organises an activity to help
raise awareness of switchover!!
