Ready, steady, census

Households across Frodsham are being asked to take part in the nationwide survey of housing and the population. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

Information from the digital-first census will help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing or new bus routes.

You will probably by now have received a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing you to complete their questionnaire online. Paper questionnaires will be available on request. Census day is March 21.

There is plenty of support available if you need help.

The contact centre can help you to complete the census over the telephone or arrange to send you a paper form and answer any queries you may have. As well as an English language telephone assistance, text relay and  a language helpline are available.
