Thursday 11th March 2021


We have received the notice below and the attached document re the Census 2021. We recommend adding the information to your noticeboards and websites, in case you have clients, residents or friends who might need extra support in filling in the Census forms.


Dear Census Supporters,


From the 3rd March digital first households (89% of all households) will be provided with their household access code for the electronic questionnaire. The census pack will replicate the messaging on the front of the paper questionnaire and will provide help options - including how to request a paper questionnaire. There will be answers to common questions and information on how to complete the form. The other 11% of households will start to receive their paper questionnaires.


I have attached an 'accessible support route' guide to this update. I hope this will help answer some of the questions your clients may have if they contact you about the census.


The questionnaire can be completed as soon as the pack arrives.


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the census.
