Confidentiality of Young Lives study children
The children and young people who are participating in the Young Lives study willingly share with us a great deal of detailed personal information about their daily lives and their families, and we have a responsibility to protect their confidentiality. For this reason, the children’s names have been changed in our publications and other outputs. The photos we use on this website are of children and young people living in similar circumstances in similar communities but are not the study children themselves. We ask website users to respect their confidentiality and not to try to identify the children, their families, or their communities.

The University of Oxford is committed to providing an accessible web presence that gives members of the public and members of the University community full access to University information, courses and activities offered publicly through the web.

This site aims to meet the requirements of the University's accessibility standard. Work is on-going to ensure that all pages meet that standard.
