These draft guidelines are being piloted with partner research sites in England and Wales between January and August 2022.

Further work is also being undertaken to explore how the draft guidelines should be adapted to better reflect issues of specific relevance to parents with learning disabilities as well as parents and children from Black, Asian and ethnic minority groups.

This document should therefore be treated as a draft, to be revised in discussion with our partners, with a view to finalisation later in 2022.
