The census is coming.
By taking part, you can help to inform decisions on services that shape your community in Brent, such as schools, doctors’ surgeries and bike lanes.
It’s important you fill in your census questionnaire because the information you share affects the life of every single person living in England and Wales. Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Your information is protected by law, so government officials dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see it.
Census Day is Sunday 21 March. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If you need help taking part in the census, there’s a wide range of support services available. You can request support for yourself, or someone else, including:
- guidance and help in many languages and formats
- a paper version of the questionnaire, if you prefer
- accessible census guidance, for example, in braille
For help or information, you can visit www.census.gov.uk
