Accessible Census 2021

Published 3rd March 2021, in Media, News & Updates

What is it?

The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The next census takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021.

Your answers to the questions will help organisations make decisions on planning and funding public services in your area, including transport, education, and healthcare.

We’ve been working with our local census team to make sure it is as accessible as possible and available in alternative formats.
