From 1st March households will be able to complete their 2021 Census which will help shape where essential resources, funding and services will be focused over the next decade. 

Over the next few days, each household will receive in the post their invitation to take part. This will have an access code to enable the public to complete their census return online. Whilst it is strongly encouraged to complete the Census online, paper forms are still available for those that need one. Census teams will be available to advise anyone who needs additional support.

It is really important you take part. Your information helps build a picture of where you live that’ll be used to decide how vital services are planned and funded. These include things like schools, doctors’ surgeries, hospitals and libraries. Charities and local services need census data too.
