What help is available for people with a disability, illness or injury?

If you need assistance completing your Census form, we encourage you to seek help from someone you trust. This could be a family member, friend, carer or neighbour. In some locations, such as hospitals and nursing homes, Field Officers will be employed to help complete the form.Information collected in the Census helps to determine funding and plan for better health facilities for both patients and carers across Australia.

Information to help people who are deaf or hard of hearing to participate in the Census is available in Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and Close Captioned.
