Census 2021

Myth Buster!

I received and email today from Doncaster MBC, who  would like to thank everyone for the great work  done in  communities for the Census so far. To further encourage anyone who has not yet returned their paper questionnaire or submitted their Census digitally, the Office for National Statistics has prepared a ‘Myth Buster’ including information about scams, which is attached.
