So, I think we are going to work hard for the money here. We applied to be a Census Support Centre to help local people complete online census returns next year. We are offering a micro centre – so 2 people for 17.5 hours a week for 9 weeks. We will train up lots of volunteers to do the work – my team are very excited to be doing this. And our library gets a payment which will cover our basic running costs for about 15 months.
We had our first meeting with the area lead from Good Things Foundation today. They are still looking for centres in our area – maybe they are in our area too? It’s a once a decade opportunity after all!
