LGBTQ+ Students News & Policy

Census 2021: Be Proud To Be Counted

You might have seen information recently about the England and Wales Census, taking place on 21st March 2021. The information you give in the census makes sure your student community gets the services it needs like bus links, bike lanes and training. This year, the census will ask voluntary questions about gender identity and sexual orientation for the first time. Find out why we're encouraging our LGBTQ+ community to respond to the census and be #ProudToBeCounted.
