Census 2021 – Complete Yours Now!

By now everyone should have received their Census letter with their unique access code, and many will have already submitted online or requested, completed and returned a paper form. 

Completing your census form/questionnaire 

Census Day is Sunday 21 March. If you’ve not yet completed your census form, please complete and submit it this weekend. 

The Information Pack you received in early March will tell you what you need to do. Use the unique code given in the Pack to access the form online using any device.

If you can’t find your Information Pack, or need any help (such as getting another access code) call the Help Line. 

It is acceptable for a family member or a trusted person to complete the form on someone else’s behalf. A young carer can also complete on behalf of an adult. 

Call the Census Help Line on 0800 141 2021 or visit census.gov.uk.  

Does everyone have to complete the census form?

Yes. It’s a legal requirement to complete the census. Failure to do so may result in a fine of £1000.

What will happen if I don’t complete the form this weekend?

You will receive reminder postcards and letters and a Census Field Officer may call at your house and leave a paper form for you to complete. Census Field Officers are employed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). They will:

  • be wearing PPE and following Covid-19 regulations.
  • have an ID Badge.
  • NOT enter your property. 
  • NOT ask you for money to complete your form on your behalf.

But please complete it as soon as can.

Lateral Flow Test Centre opens at Daventry Leisure Centre

A community Lateral Flow Device testing centre has opened at Daventry Leisure Centre. 

This complements the existing provision in Northampton, Corby, Wellingborough and Brackley and offers a more local testing venue for those in Daventry and the surrounding areas.  Lateral Flow Device testing is otherwise known as rapid testing and is used in people who do not have symptoms of Covid-19.  The aim is to identify the one in three people who may be infectious without being aware, in order to reduce spread of the virus.  Rapid testing enables swift action to be taken to protect colleagues and family members of those who test positive with COVID-19 and to reduce any onward risk of transmission. 

Booking a test

The new site is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9.30am to 12pm and 1pm to 6.30pm, providing a wide variety of testing slots.  Each test involves a swab of the mouth and nose and provides a result within 30 minutes. 

Priority is given to workers in the following sectors: 

  • Health or social care
  • Transportation
  • Education or childcare (if not receiving regular rapid tests via the workplace)
  • Essential shop, supermarkets or financial services
  • Food production or processing
  • Warehousing, packing or distribution
  • Essential public sector services including waste, bin collections, security etc
  • Construction, utilities or communications
  • Agency workers.

LATEST! Dedicated phone number for requesting a paper Census form

We have just been advised that a dedicated telephone number has been released for people who want to request a paper form: 0800 876 6276 

NO other help will be available on this number.

The general Help Line number of 0800 141 2021 remains and over 500 additional staff will be answering calls from Monday. 

Households should by now have received the Census Information Pack which explains how to complete the census. The unique access code enables people to complete the form online using any device.

If for any reason you have not received this by 15 March, you can call the Help Line on 0800 141 2021 to obtain an access code or to be sent a paper form.

How long will it take to complete the form? 

If completing the form online, allow about 10 minutes to complete the household section and around 10 minutes per person to complete the personal information.  The form doesn’t have to be completed in one go.  You can complete some information, save the form, and return to it at a later date. But the form must be completed by or on 21 March 2021. 

Who should be included in the Census form?

Everyone who lives in the household.  This includes:

• anyone who lives permanently or counts the address as their family home

• people temporarily away from home, for example students or school children boarding away

• people staying at the address temporarily if they live in the UK and have no other address

• people staying at the address temporarily from outside of the UK who are staying in the country for three months or more

There’s also a separate section to fill in for visitors – that is, anyone staying in the household overnight on Census Day, Sunday 21 March 2021.  

And don’t forget to include babies and children!

Who should fill in the Census form?

Typically, one person completes the form on behalf of everyone living in the household. 

But if there are lodgers or adult children living at home, they might prefer to complete their own personal details. If they want to do this they can call the Help Line on 0800 141 2021 and get their own access code and complete their personal details. 

And if people are house-sharing, everyone can have their own access code.

If someone isn’t able to complete their own form, a relative or someone else they trust can do it with them. There is no lower age limit for completing the form. If, for example, a young person is caring for an adult with disabilities, the young person can complete the form. 

What sort of questions are asked?

There are questions about the household as well as some personal questions. The majority of the questions are compulsory but some (for example sexual orientation and gender identity) are voluntary.  This year there is a new compulsory question which asks if a respondent has served in the armed forces. 

Do people have to complete the form?

Yes they do. It’s a legal requirement. Anyone who deliberately fails to complete the form, or deliberately gives false information, can be prosecuted and fined £1,000.  

Where can people get help?

Dog Theft Survey

Neighbourhood Watch Network is supporting Sussex’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, who, in partnership with the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), has created an online survey designed to understand the public’s perception of dog theft, enforcement, and the prosecution of offenders.

The survey includes a question seeking views on whether dogs should be treated in law merely as property when they are stolen. Having a common understanding of how the public feels about this issue will help inform discussions that PCCs and NWN will have nationally, as well as allow police forces to better understand the public’s views.

Mrs Bourne said: “Pet theft, dog theft in particular, is a growing concern for the public and their fear has been perpetuated over the last couple of weeks with shocking reports in the media of more dogs being snatched by criminals.

“I am incredibly eager to get more detail around this issue and understand residents’ views and if they feel more could be done to respond to their concerns or for more preventative measures to be put in place to better protect their pets.”
Neighbourhood Watch Network have just been approached to help support this campaign so apologies for the short notice as the survey closes on Friday12th March.  Please, if you can, and haven’t already, take a couple of minutes to complete the survey as your support and views are really valuable to us.

Link to survey is here:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/dogtheft

Kind regards

Completing Your 2021 Census

The Census, held every 10 years, will take place on Sunday 21st March 2021.

By now, residents should have received a letter and leaflet with information about how to complete the Census.

NB:  This will be the first time that households/individuals will be able to complete their Census forms online, and a family member or trusted friend will be able to help those who don’t have internet access or are not used to doing things online. 

If you would prefer a hard copy form you can request this, either online at www.census.gov.uk or by calling the Census Help Line on 0800 141 2021 (calls to this number are free of charge). You’ll need your reference number, which you’ll find at the top of your letter.

What the census is

The census is a survey run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) that gives a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.  All kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, use the information to help provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare.  Without the census, it would be much more difficult to do this.

By taking part, you’ll be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.
