The census is coming. By taking part, you can help to inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as housing, schools, healthcare services and transport.
The census is used to allocate resources and funding on a local and national level for the next 10 years. So, taking part is very important to make sure your needs are reflected in future policy and allocation of funding to local authorities, services, charities and community groups. The information you share will affect the life of every single person in your local community and across England and Wales.
Your information is protected by law. That means government officials or anyone else dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see it. Any data collected is anonymised and kept safe for the next 100 years.
Census Day is Sunday 21 March. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post – we also have paper forms and a wide range of support and translation services and materials available if you need help completing the form.
For more information, please visit www.census.gov.uk. If you have any questions, worries or concerns about the census, please contact your local Census Engagement Manager, Vanessa Fagan directly: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07452 935279.
