In 2015, we will be returning to the Study children for the sixth time, and we would like to get your views on the priorities and possibilities for what data we should be collecting from and about the Study children at that point, when they will be aged around 14 years.

The attached note gives more details about the consultation, and why we think this is a particularly important point to collect as wide a range of views as possible, not only on what we should be collecting, but also where (e.g. at home or elsewhere), how (e.g. by personal interview, direct measures and assessments, web self-completion), and who from (e.g. Study members, their parents, others).

Input from participants will be preceded by expert overviews from speakers including Paul Gregg, Jane Elliott and Mark Peters.

Whether or not you have actively used the Millennium Cohort Study previously, the study team would value your input.
