Solomon Asiedu is the Census Community Adviser – Black African Community, Office for National Statistics (ONS). He has lived in Slough for 12 years and is originally from Ghana. Solomon said, “I have a great sense of community so I see the census as an opportunity for me to get involved to help people within it to complete the census to meet our needs.”
The Census 2021 builds a portrait of every community in England and Wales and helps ensure our local area gets the healthcare it needs. Predicting future healthcare needs is never easy, which is why it is vital for everyone in Slough, Maidenhead and Windsor to complete their census on 21st March 2021.
For those who need extra support to complete the census online, the Census support centre is based at:
- Pakistani Welfare Association, 50 Darvills Lane, Chalvey, Slough SL1 2PH.
