Get help where you live : I want to help someone else

Can I help someone fill in their form?

Yes, you can help.

If the person can give their own answers, and is happy for you to do so, you can complete their form for them.

If the person cannot give you their own answers, you must make sure you answer with what you believe to be true about the person, or what they’d want you to say.

How can I help someone to get online?

There are a number of ways you can help a person. You can either:

  • let them use your device that connects to the internet to fill in their online form
  • use their access code to go online and fill in their form for them
  • take them to one of our Census Online Support Centres where a census adviser can help them to get online
