Our pledge to you
We respect your wishes
Taking part is completely voluntary and you do not have to answer any questions you don’t want to. Just let the researcher who interviews you know and they will move on to the next question.
We answer your questions
Your researcher will be happy to answer any questions you have about the study which aren’t covered here.
We guard your privacy
We will treat the information you give us in the strictest confidence under the Data Protection Act 1998. The results collected are used for research purposes only.You will never receive any junk mail as a result of speaking to us. We never pass on your details to other organisations for commercial purposes.
We will be writing a report of our findings but individual names will not be included and the findings will, as far as possible, be written up in a way that protects the anonymity of participants. However while DWP do not know which individuals are participating, they are aware of which LAs have been approached. As such, individuals may be identifiable by DWP. We will therefore confirm that you consent to your views being included at the end of the interview.
