For carers

For more detailed information about the study:

Caregivers including foster carers, relative or kinship carers, residential care workers and adoptive parents of children and young people aged 9 months to 17 years will be invited to complete a face-to-face interview at 18-24-month intervals during the study.

If you agree to take part in the study, you will receive a brochure and consent form before  each interview. If you have children or young people older than seven years taking part in the study, you will be given information about the questions asked during their interview. See the questions given to 7–11 year olds and 12–17 year olds.

The longitudinal study is currently conducting the 5th round of interviews.

As part of this study we collected the teacher's view of how your child was progressing at school during the 2nd to 4th round of interviews if the caregiver gave written consent for the teacher survey.
