Faiza Adeel – Community Field Officer

The Bordertown MRC put the ABS in touch with Faiza to work as a bilingual Community Field Officer for Census 2021.

Faiza arrived with her husband six years ago as a skilled migrant, and became an Australian citizen in 2020.

She has been volunteering with the AMRC for six months, often as an interpreter and looking after children in the creche.

Faiza was very concerned when talking to the community about Census. She says there are a lot of people who are unaware that Census takes place every 5 years.

She has been talking to people who were living in the same town or interstate previously, and said that Census information didn’t reach them, and they did not complete the form.

The partnership between the AMRC and the ABS will show the true representation of the number of people living in regional areas, and their diverse make up.
