Census 2021 is a once in a decade opportunity to understand the scale of unpaid care being provided in Leicester

[20/03/2021 | No comment]
Yesterday I appeared on BBC East Midlands Today to talk about the Census this weekend, and how it is a fantastic opportunity to understand the scale of unpaid care being provided in Leicester.
 
The Census is important as the results will help organisations, including local authorities and charities, to make planning and funding decisions for public services in Leicester and across the country.
 
It is so important to identify those who are helping to look after their elderly or disabled relatives, as currently too many unpaid carers are missing out on the information and support they need.
 
A Census letter will be sent to every household, and the Census survey can then be completed online, with paper survey forms also available.
