Census 2021 is happening this March
The Census 2021 is coming and Brunswick Hub is an official Census Support Centre ……
In March families and individuals will be asked to fill in a national census. This is a questionnaire which is sent out to households every ten years to get a picture of society on a particular given day (March 21st 2021). Census 2021 will be “digital first” meaning it’ll be mainly online. Most households in England and Wales will get a letter with a unique access code to complete their census online.
The census helps organisations like councils understand what our society needs now and what it’s likely to need in the future. The information it collects helps plan and fund services in your area. This could include transport, education and healthcare. The census is so important that it’s compulsory for everyone in England and Wales to take part. Be counted and help make sure your community gets the services needed now and in the future.
Brunswick Hub has approved and trained Census Support Service Advisors who can help those who need support filling in their online census, or paper copy. Support may be required for a number of reasons, including the following.
Please phone 01926 422123 10am – 2pm Monday to Friday to find out more about the help we can can offer.
Some people may be concerned that completing the census will mean government bodies will have access to their names and situation. All personal information and details which would identify someone is kept locked away for 100 years. It is only the numbers which are used to help local authorities, charities, business and the government to decide what services to run. The ONS (Office for National Statistics) who carry out the Census is independent from government. This means officials dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see your census information.
