Census 2021 heroes

Census 2021 will be the 22nd census of England and Wales.

To celebrate this, we will be recognising the achievements of ordinary people who have done extraordinary things.

From a schoolteacher who has transformed your life to a doctor who may have saved it.

22 purple plaques for Census 2021

We will be awarding 22 bespoke purple plaques for local heroes who have gone the extra mile for their community.

There will be one plaque for every census so far, installed on the buildings which best represent the person being honoured. This could be a hospital, a school, a library or a community’s sports hub.

The Census 2021 Purple Plaques competition has now closed. Thank you for your entries – we will be in touch with the winners in due course.
