Community groups and charities : Overview

Why your help is vital

There are many ways you can help and encourage people to take part in Census 2021. If you’re involved in your community, a charity or voluntary sector organisation, you will know what help and encouragement people need. You understand the people you help or represent 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 and the people you represent.

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 and get funding.

With your help, we can ensure everyone is able to take part in the census and it counts all of us.
