Census 2021

We are getting ready for Census 2021

The next census in England and Wales is taking place on 21 March 2021. Run by the Office for National Statistics, the census is a once-in-a-decade survey that helps provide a unique snapshot of the society we live in.

The information you give helps all kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, to help plan and provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare. By taking part, you will be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.

In March, you will receive a letter in the post inviting you to take part and giving you all the details on how to do this.
