Help play your part on Census day – 21 March 2021

There’s just over a week to go until the Census 2021, the biggest survey of our population.

The Census, happening on Sunday 21 March, takes place every ten years and provides valuable information about households across the UK. It’s important you fill in your Census questionnaire as we use this information to plan the services our residents need.

You should complete your Census form on 21 March and current restrictions mean everyone is encouraged to complete the Census digitally this year. Letters are being sent to residents with an access code to complete the Census online.

You can submit your completed questionnaire before 21 March if you know who will be in your household on that day but if you submit it before the 21st and your circumstances change, you’ll need to let the Census team know (contact information is included in your letter).

If you need help, including if you can’t complete the Census online, visit or call the freephone number 0800 141 2021.
