Community Advisers working with the Pakistani community in Reading

The Census 2021 team are currently encouraging applications for the role of Community Advisers working with the Pakistani community in Reading. The role involves positively engaging with the Pakistani community to support and encourage everyone to complete their census questionnaire. Advisers need to speak Panjabi or Urdu to a sufficient standard to confidently discuss the census in every-day terms, in that language.

The census is a once a decade compulsory survey of the entire population of England and Wales.

It provides detailed information and statistics that drive future decisions and the direction of the country. Census 2021 will continue a history that stretches back more than 200 years – there’s been a census every ten years since 1801, except for 1941. The census is unique and touches every individual and household in the UK. The data collected is vital in helping us understand our society. It opens a window on the needs of different groups within our population, supports equalities monitoring and is used by organisations and individuals to make decisions that affect us all. Government, businesses, charities and local authorities use the data to understand changing demands for transport links and for public services such as schools, doctors’ surgeries and hospitals. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out the census for England and Wales. Find out more about Census 2021 at www.census.gov.uk
