Census 2021 Details & What To Do?
Blackburn Central Library: Get help to complete the Census 2021
The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been happening for over 200 years.
Households will soon be asked to take part in census 2021, the first census that will be run predominantly online. Census day takes place on 21 March 2021.
Your household will receive a letter with a code enabling you to complete your form online. In areas where fewer people have access to the internet, households will receive a paper copy. If you’d prefer a paper copy, you can telephone a free national helpline to request one – details will be in your letter.
Help to complete the census
Our advisers can help you to complete your census form over the phone during lockdown by guiding you through the form, or completing it for you.
One of our trained advisers will call you at your appointment time.
You can also book one of our PCs, or use our WiFi, if you are able to complete the form independently.
Appointments are available from Monday 1 March until 4 May 2021, and will need to be booked in advance by calling 01254 661221 between the following times (except BH):

Face to face appointments
Face to face appointments will be available if and when COVID-19 rules allow.
These will be held at Blackburn Central Library and Darwen Library.
Phone appointments will still be available, or you could book a computer at either of the libraries listed above to complete the form online.
