The census is here

Sunday 21st March 2021 is almost upon us when all residents in Congleton will be asked to complete their census information.

The importance of the census cannot be overestimated as the information gathered helps determine the amount of funding that Cheshire East Council receives from central government to spend on schools, hospitals/healthcare, housing and local transport, something that affects us all.

Pete Benton, ONS Director of Census Operations, commented: 

“The census is such an important undertaking that helps inform the vital services we all rely on every single day within our communities. 

“We’re thrilled with all the support we have received so far and would like to thank all our partners for their participation. Now is the time for everyone to complete their census and be part of history.” 

Every household in England and Wales will now be receiving their census letters with unique access codes enabling them to fill in their census online.  Census day is March 21, but you can fill yours in as soon as you receive your letter if you’re confident there will be no change in who usually lives in your household.  

Papers forms are available for those who need it, plus a range of other support. If you need any help, or to request a paper form, you can visit the census website www.census.gov.uk.  The census support centre (freephone 0800 141 2021 in England) is available if you can’t find the help you need online.
