                            There is still time to take part in the Census 2021


All, as the Census operation is continuing, please find and distribute these comms across your communities, the key message is there is still time to complete , and I attach an e format poster which I would ask you to distribute via social media, place on your website, email to parishioners and organisations you have contact with. 


The key points for this communication is to guide people to methods to complete


1)  You still have time to complete.

2) If you don’t you risk a £1000 fine and a criminal record. 

3) If you own a 2nd property / holiday home you must complete a questionnaire for that as well.

The census is taking place in March 2021.


It’s a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. It helps plan and fund public services, like transport, education and healthcare. 

By taking part and encouraging others to do the same, you’ll help make sure you and your community get the services you need. 

Nearer the time, you’ll receive more information. There’ll be plenty of help to take part for people who need it.

                             Important Information for the Community


The Office for National Statistics will shortly be carrying out the Census 2021 across England and Wales. Census Day is Sunday 21st March. After this day, in your authority, census officers will be:

    •    knocking on doors following up non-responders  

    •    helping the public with queries  

From 22nd March 2021 our field census officers will be working across England and Wales. We have recruited around 29000 members of staff to carry out home visits.  

All our officers will be carrying official identification cards. The card will have a photograph and the officer’s name. The officers will work through the day to make contact with residents but will not call before 09:00 or after 20:00. 


Any member of the public concerned that the person on their doorstep is not a census officer can call the number on the critical workers letter that the officer can show them. 

Census officers will never ask for any money or bank details at any point during the conversation with respondents. 

Our staff in the field are classed as key workers. The law allows that where there is a lockdown people can leave their home for work if they cannot work from home. As their role cannot be carried out by working from home, they are allowed to carry out the duties of their role. 

The health and safety of the public and the census field force is of the utmost importance to us. Field force routines in Census 2021 have been planned with the health and safety of both the public and field staff front and centre. All our officers will work in a socially distanced way; they will all be wearing PPE and they will not enter anyone’s home. 

The Office for National Statistics has several important studies and surveys continuing alongside the census (more details here). It is, therefore, possible that an address will be visited by staff working on other surveys too.  

If you have any questions about the 2021 census work being carried out in your authority, please phone the Partnership Team on 01329 447434. More information is also available atwww.census.gov.uk, or you can email 2021Census.LA.Liaison@ons.gov.uk
