Census field officers are now working in the community to remind everyone to complete their census and to signpost support.

Please share the following information with your community / client base so that residents are aware of the process and can avoid falling victim to anyone fraudulently claiming to be a census field officer.

All census officers:

  • carry official identification cards with their photograph and name
  • wear PPE, use hand sanitiser and socially distance
  • can show a critical worker letter permitting them to be out and about doing their job

Any resident can call 0800 085 8239 to confirm the identity of a census officer and the area they are working in.

Census officers NEVER ask for money, bank details or any other financial information. They will NEVER ask to enter a home.

They work the following hours:

Monday – Saturday 09.00-20.00

Sundays and Bank Holidays 10.00-1.h00

If any doubt, always close the door.  If a resident feels threatened or in danger, then they should call 999.
