UPDATED: The 2011 Census is coming!
On 27th March 2011, all residential households in the United Kingdom will be taking part in a census. The census enables central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to identify need for housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.
The census also feeds into the allocation of funding for local authorities and plays a major part in identifying the need for services in local communities. As well as schools, housing and hospitals, this has an impact on everyday life such as ensuring that the streets are cleaned and in good repair; that parks are kept in good condition; and that the refuse is collected.
The census should be filled in by all residents, not just by citizens. In the last census many non-UK citizens mistakenly believed that it did not apply to them. By not filling in the form their communities were under-represented.
When the questionnaire envelope comes through the door it will be easily recognised by the purple “2011 Census” logo. There will be a wide range of help options available such as language guidance booklets, large print format, Text Relay and census field staff on hand, as well as on-line help and telephone call centres.
More information about the 2011 Census can be found at: www.census.gov.uk.
LATEST NEWS: a completion centre event will be held in the WERA Clubroom (16 Blantyre Street) on Friday, 25th of March, between 2pm and 6pm. All residents requiring assistance with their Census form are encouraged to attend.
