In anticipation of Scotland’s Census 2021 being conducted primarily online, National Records of Scotland are looking to connect with third sector organisations to learn more about their needs and those of the people they support.

They are keen to explore:

  • how they can work with third sector organisations to respond to those needs
  • the channels third sector organisations would recommend be used to reach and encourage responses
  • the types of support that need to be provided to help maximise digital participation
  • whether the census can be used as an opportunity to leave a legacy in organisations or communities e.g. increased digital skills, reduced digital reluctance or services/IT

If you work for a third sector organisation and would like to support the Scotland’s Census team in maximising digital participation, then please complete the Scotland’s Census Short Survey and return to scotlandscensus@nrscotland.gov.uk.
