Census Support Service

Good Things Foundation has been contracted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to support the delivery of the next Census in England and Wales.

In 2021 the Census will be ‘digital first’ and Good Things Foundation will provide support to ensure those without digital skills or digital access can participate.

We’re working with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to build a network of Census Support Centres who can support people to complete the census online, ensuring everyone has the chance to complete the census digitally.

We’re looking for organisations who can deliver support to people wishing to complete the census online between March and May 2021. You’ll be required to deliver the service across a set amount of hours each week with the possibility of additional delivery covering evenings, weekends and the census weekend.

The expression of interest form is now closed and the fuller application form will open in April. Due to the current coronavirus situation, we appreciate that you may not have had time to complete the expression of interest. Therefore, organisations who did not submit an expression of interest will now be able to submit a fuller application in April also.
