Tell Us Once (TUO) is a voluntary service administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). It is offered at the time of a verified birth and death by local authorities (LAs). It offers the citizen the option of sharing information with a range of public sector services at one time, avoiding the need for the citizen to separately inform multiple organisations.

The table below gives details on the numbers providing the Birth Service for each of the last 5 years.
