Sunday, March 21 marked the day that millions of people across England and Wales completed key questions about themselves and their households to ensure local services in every community are informed by the best information possible.
However, for those who have not yet submitted their online or paper census questionnaires, or perhaps have misplaced their invitation letter, there is still plenty of time to complete yours and lots of help available.
This includes local Census Support Centres where there are trained advisors ready to help. We have two in Lambeth: one in Brixton and one in Stockwell.
You can also find plenty of information, order a paper form, or request a new access code on the census website, or via the Census Contact Centre on 0800 141 2021.
The results from the census will shed light on the needs of different groups and communities, and the inequalities people are experiencing, ensuring the big decisions facing the country following the pandemic and EU exit are based on the best information possible, through the anonymised answers provided.
The ONS will never share personal details and no one, including government bodies, will be able to identify you in census statistics. Personal census records will be kept secure for 100 years, and only then can future generations view it.
So, if you have not already done so, please complete your census form as soon as possible to help shape the future of your local community.
