Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all interviewer home visits on GUS and other surveys have been stopped. But we’d really like to speak to all of our families, so we hope that those of you still to take part will complete an online questionnaire and telephone interview instead. The information you provide helps those making decisions on important issues affecting young people and their families.

We’ll be contacting you in June and July to provide more information. Following that, one of our interviewers will be in touch by phone to arrange a short interview at a time convenient to you and to answer any questions you may have about the online questionnaire. The interviewer will not be visiting your home.

As in previous years, we would also like the young people in the study to take part and we hope that they will complete a short web questionnaire and telephone interview. We will provide more details about this when we get in touch with you.

We are really grateful for all of your help so far and very much look forward to finding out how you’re getting on.  We’ll be updating our Frequently Asked Questions with information about the changes.  In the meantime, please get in touch if you have any questions. You can contact us free on 0800 652 2704 or by emailing
