Census Field Officer Doorstep Visits

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

  • carry official identification cards with their photograph and name
  • wear PPE, use hand sanitizer 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 09h00-20h00
Sundays and Bank Holidays 10h00-16h00
If any doubt, always close the door. 
If a resident feels threatened or in danger, then they should call 999.
