Aims/priorities: The United Kingdom census is a ten yearly compulsory survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. The information collected from the census helps inform local authorities and government about demands for vital public services such as schools, hospitals, GP services and social care provisions.
In 2021, the census will be ‘digital first’ and accessible through an online platform. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is responsible for carrying out the census in England and Wales and has contracted with Good Things Foundation to set up and mobilise a network of community organisations and libraries which will form the Census Support Centres aimed at providing people with support to complete their census online.
Who can apply? In order to enter into a service contract, your organisation has to be either
