By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport. The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.
It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it’d be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan and fund public services.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.
Census Day was Sunday 21st March 2021. This is the day that a ‘snap shot’ is taken of everyone living in the UK. Their ages, where they live, what they do etc. If you haven’t already completed this information, you can still do it reflecting back on who was living at your home on 21st March. You can complete your details online as soon as you get receive your access code in the post. If you need support completing your census form online, call
075381 55535 to book your appointment.
We have several volunteers who speak community languages too.
