Hello <<First Name>>

The clocks have finally gone forward, the days are getting longer and lighter and we’re only hours away from a bank holiday weekend - I’m very much looking forward to it and hope you are too! 

One of the things a lot of people will be doing this weekend is completing their online Census questionnaire. Although the official Census Day was Sunday 21 March, there are actually a few weeks left for people to complete.

As this year’s Census is ‘digital first’, I’m very proud that we’ve been managing the first Census Support Service. Hundreds of Online Centres across the country are providing free, friendly, local help to anyone who needs support filling in their questionnaire.

If you know someone who needs help with the Census - or you just want to tell your community about the service, please do let everyone know they can find their nearest centre here.

Best wishes,
Helen Milner OBE
