Knowsley schools to share importance of completing Census 2021

by Jonathan Kearney

Parents across Knowsley are to receive a letter reminding them of the importance of completing Census 2021.

The letter to schools from Knowsley’s Census Engagement Manager will be shared with parents ahead of census day on Sunday 21 March.

The census is a unique survey that takes place every 10 years in England and Wales. Information from the census helps decide how services are planned and funded in Knowsley. This affects everything from doctors surgeries and housing to bus routes and schools.

Accurate data provides a better chance of getting the right funding for services in the borough.

Households across England and Wales have been receiving their unique access code to help them complete the questionnaire online. Paper questionnaires are also available on request.

Help is available to help you complete the census in many different ways including online and freephone telephone support on 0800 141 2021. Translation services are available in most languages. You can also ask a friend, relative or trusted person to help you.

Census field officers will be in the area to follow up non-completion, to encourage completion and to signpost support. They will always carry photo ID and they will not be accessing anyone’s property.

You can find more information about Census 2021 on the Knowsley Council website.
