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-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.
You will need to give written consent for the teacher (childcare or school) to complete their survey.
