For detailed information about the study and to find out more about what is involved:
If you are a child or young person aged 7 years or older taking part in the study you will receive a postcard before each interview conducted every 18-24 months.
If you agree to be interviewed, the interviewer will ask you if you have any questions about the study before you start. You will then be asked to sign the agreement form.
