Every 10 years the Office for National Statistics collects information about everyone in England and Wales. They do this by asking some questions about you, where you live and where you work. This is called a census.
The census must be completed by 21 March 2021. You can do this online.
You can complete your census in advance of 21 March if you know who is going to be in your house on this date.
If you need support to fill in the census, you can ask your Grace Eyre support worker or carer to help.
