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.
