Petition text

Please drop your plans to take money away from Cbeebies and CBBC.

Our children deserve quality television on channels without adverts.

Why is this important?

The government is trying to take money away from Cbeebies and CBBC so more children’s programmes can be shown on channels with adverts. [1]

CBeebies and CBBC allow us those precious few minutes to make a cuppa or put the washing on the line. And it means we don’t have to sit our little ones in front of adverts running every few minutes on the other channels.

There's something really special about CBeebies and CBBC. Please sign the petition to protect CBeebies and CBBC:
