ANGELA CONSTANCE MSP ENCOURAGES WEST LOTHIAN FAMILIES TO COMPLETE SCOTLAND'S CENSUS

ANGELA CONSTANCE MSP ENCOURAGES WEST LOTHIAN FAMILIES TO COMPLETE SCOTLAND'S CENSUS

Published date : 21 April, 2022

ACCURATE DATA HELPS PROVIDE BETTER SERVICES IN THIS AREA

 

Angela Constance MSP is urging the people of Almond Valley to play their part in planning for future services across West Lothian by completing the Scottish census.

 

Speaking ahead of the May 1 deadline for completing the census, Ms Constance said:

 

“The census is the official count of every person and household in the country, takes place every 10 years and it is in the interests of everyone in Almond Valley to complete it accurately and on time.

 

“The census benefits everyone because it helps the government and other service providers like local councils make important decisions about vital services such as education, healthcare and employment. Completing the census helps officials make better decisions about the things that matter to you.

 

“By setting aside just a few minutes to answer questions about yourself, your household, and the place where you live, you play a vital role in helping shape important community services in West Lothian, from the building of new schools and hospitals to improving transport links and understanding health needs.

 

“So, it is hugely important to play your part to make sure everyone is heard, and everyone’s individual needs are accurately recorded.”

 

NOTES

 

  • Every household in Scotland must complete Scotland's Census. It’s a legal responsibility and householders are responsible for making sure they respond. Anyone who hasn’t completed the census by the 1st of May could face a fine.
  • For anyone who has yet to complete it, help and support is available on the website census.gov.scot or via a free helpline on 0800 030 8308.
  • Guidance is available for every question in English and 16 other languages on the website. An interpretation service covering most languages can be accessed by calling 0800 030 8333. You can also request copies of the guidance in Braille, large print or on audio CD or USB. There are guidance videos in British Sign Language on the key pages of the website and a video relay service offered by contactscotland-bsl.org can be used by BSL users to access advice from the helpline.
