Community groups : Overview

Why your help is vital

There are many ways you can help and encourage your community to take part in Census 2021. As someone involved in your community, you’ll know exactly what help and encouragement people need. You understand your local area and the people around you better than anyone.

Taking part in the census is so important, as it gathers essential information that’s used for things that affect your community.

Public bodies use census information to help plan and fund services like housing, education and healthcare. Charities and businesses also use it to inform their work.

With your help, we’ll ensure everyone can take part in the census and be counted.
