The census is coming. By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport.
St Antony's Centre is a registered Census Support Centre, our team will be working to support local community members and others looking for help accessing the census online. Whether from the comfort of home over the phone or at our Centre we can help you or someone you know complete the census online.
The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.
It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it’d be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan and fund public services.
In one way or another, your information touches the lives of every single person living in England and Wales, whether it’s through using census information to plan new schools, doctors’ surgeries or bike lanes.
Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, government officials dealing with applications you’ve made or payments or services you receive cannot see it.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.
This year the census can be completed online. While you can request the census in paper form households are encouraged to complete the census online.
Some of our team have become trained census advisors and can help you or someone you know to access the census online. If you need support or know of someone have may need help get in touch with the centre today to arrange an appointment.
As a centre we are working in line with Government restrictions and will provide support in line with current Covid guidelines; all our support is available over the phone for those shielding or who do not wish to visit our centre but as always one of the team can be contacted to discuss suitable arrangements.
