The census is a ten yearly compulsory survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales, helping inform local authorities and government about demands for public services such as schools, hospitals, GP services, and social care.
In March 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 a network of community organisations and libraries – Census Support Centres – to provide people with support to complete their census online.
Havens Community Hub is proud to be a Census Support Centre and will be supporting residents of the Lewes District who are less confident using computers and the internet to complete the census online at their office in Thompson Road, Denton.
Community Transport will be available to book to enable residents to attend support appointments if they are unable to use public transport.
More details of the service will be released in January.
