Good morning and welcome to Census week!

The national Census takes place this Sunday 21st March, and people all over the country have started to receive their joining instructions through the mail.

Your joining instructions contains a 16-digit code, which you can enter at to complete your Census questionnaire.

There are many different avenues of support should anyone need it including:

  • Local Census support centres are now open - 0300 555 1387 to book an appointment or to speak to an advisor.

  • National telephone helpline - 0800 141 2021

  • To request a paper Census - 0800 876 6276

  • Other language helpline - 0800 587 2021

  • You can also order a paper Census and there is lots of guidance, help and support available online at

I have also attached details for a series of online completion events that I will be hosting over the next two weeks. These are sessions where residents can join me online and I will take them through the process of completing the Census. Please feel free to circulate these amongst your communities

We would very much appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to share a message about the Census on any social media accounts you might operate. I have attached an image, and a short piece of text below to accompany:

Census day is this Sunday! When your access code arrives, please head online to and fill in your Census to help shape our community. We are asking people to fill in their Census and to help others around you to complete theirs too where possible #CensusTVNF #Census2021.

Please feel free to send me an email if I can help your community to complete the Census!

Thank you all for your hard work and support in promoting the Census and help us collect data to build and shape our community.

Kind regards
