In England most centres are open to provide phone support and face-to-face appointments. They can help with general census queries, and help you to fill in your online census or paper form.

In Wales we are working with the Welsh Government to find a way to open centres for face-to-face support. In the meantime, centres may be able to provide phone support.

The opening of each centre will be subject to individual site risk assessments and to local restrictions.

Look up your nearest centres for contact details and information about what support is available:
