Every ten years, the census provides a unique snapshot of our society. The next census is happening on Sunday 21st March 2021 and shortly, you’ll be receiving an invitation pack in the post. The pack will give you all the information you need to know in order for you to complete your census.
Peter Hanlon is the Office For National Statistics Census Engagement Manager for the Warrington and St Helens area and was our special guest recently on the morning show.
Peter is helping to raise awareness and encouraging us all to take part. The census gathers vital information to help plan services such as transport, education and healthcare in our area.
