Census 2021

The census is a national survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.

This information helps to plan and fund public services. By taking part in the census, you’ll help make sure your community gets the services it needs. 

The next census, which is carried out by the Office for National Statistics, is in March 2021 and can be completed online.

People will also be able to request paper copies and different languages.

If you have family or neighbours who do not have internet access or skills, please do your bit by letting them know about the forthcoming census and finding out if they need help to complete it. 

The census is mandatory and you can be fined if you don't do it. Find out about the census at the UK Government census website

You can contact us about the census by telephone on 01756 700 600 or you can send an email to the census team.
