Stand up and be counted

After 10 years, it’s time for another national Census. Census Day will be on March 21, but households across the country will start to receive letters containing online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

Everyone benefits from the Census. The data collected helps inform decisions locally and nationally on vital services and issues, ensuring
millions of pounds are spent in the areas that will benefit the community most.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from the Government. At the heart of
the Census is keeping your information safe, confidential, secure and private. This will be the first Census that can be completed online, and the ONS will be offering a range of support networks, helplines and guidance materials on its website, in a number of languages and
accessible formats. You can also call and request a paper form instead of completing online.

This will be the most inclusive Census ever launched and The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has appointed Census Engagement
Managers to support Bexley and Greenwich residents to help make Census 2021 a success. Census Engagement Managers will help organisations, charities, faith groups and community leaders within the borough to raise awareness of the census, and the value to all residents in taking part.
