Households across Nordelph will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
There are many people in our community who are vulnerable, and even more so during the coronavirus outbreak. Please be reassured that the Norfolk Assistance Scheme can help you get the ongoing support you need.
Due to the coronavirus situation, a coordinated emergency relief response has been developed for Norfolk people in crisis - this information can be found HERE
