For children and young people

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.

The longitudinal study is currently conducting the 5th round of interviews. The interview includes some activities and some questions that take about 30 minutes to complete. All children and young people who participate in the Study will be given a Certificate of Research Participation.

If you turn 18 during the study, you will be invited to stay in the study and complete a questionnaire about how you are going from 2019.
