Households across Wealden are being asked to take part in Census 2021. Local support centres can provide assistance.

Census Day is on March 21, but households will now be receiving letters with online codes explaining how they can complete their forms. If you don’t get one in the next couple of weeks, please visit the Census Contact Centre.  Or call the Contact Centre on 0800 141 2021.

You can also request a paper questionnaire if you’d prefer to complete your census that way.

Local census support centres are now open. Staff will offer help for people not confident online, who don’t have a computer or need help completing on paper.
