TV Licence Information

You need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record live TV programmes  on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

This could be on any device, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder. If you do any of the above without a valid licence, you risk prosecution and a maximum penalty of up to £1,000, plus any legal costs and/or compensation you may be ordered to pay. You will also still have to buy a TV Licence if you need one.
To find out more, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/info

How can I buy a TV Licence?
There are lots of different ways to buy a TV Licence . Whether that’s through weekly cash payments, using your nearest PayPoint outlet, spreading the cost with monthly, quarterly or yearly direct debit, credit/debit card or by post – just choose the one that suits you best.
For more information on the ways to pay, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/payinfo

Could I get a concession?
Are you, or is someone you live with:
·         75 years old or older? You are eligible to apply for a free Over 75 TV Licence . Call 0300 790 6112 with your National Insurance number to hand or visit tvlicensing.co.uk/over75info
·         Blind and can provide the appropriate evidence? You are eligible to apply for a 50% blind concession on your TV Licence . If you are partially sighted (sight impaired) you are not eligible. To find out more, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/blind  

What if I don’t need a licence?
If you don’t need a TV Licence , we would ask you to let TV Licensing know so that they can update their details. They won’t then send you any letters for approximately two years.

Colchester & Tendring Children's Centre - "For Dads"

Dads matter too! 
Here at Colchester and Tendring Children's Centres we understand the value of a father figure in a child's life. Children need fathers just as they need mothers, to love them, to be interested in them and to respond to their needs, making them feel valued and understood. This gives fathers and male carers the opportunity to have that all important quality and enjoyable time with their children. These sessions enable children and fathers to form an enjoyable and rewarding relationship, which is good for both and can make a big difference to a child's life.
Groups for fathers and father figures run from several children's centres please check your local children's centre calendar for details. The groups are fun sessions for fathers and their children to enjoy different themed activities such as sports and music sessions.
