National Records for Scotland are currently preparing for the 2021 census, which will be offered almost entirely online.
As such, they are looking to connect with third sector organisations, learning more about their needs and the needs of the people they support, in order to maximise digital participation for the census.
They would also like the views of third sector organisations on:
- how they can work with third sector organisations to respond to those needs
- the channels that 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, such as increased digital skills, reduced digital reluctance, or services and IT.
To complete the survey, please visit the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) website, where the survey is hosted.
Alternatively, for further information on the 2021 census, visit the Scotland’s Census website.
