  • Paper diary booklet and activities list

    Haven’t received the diary booklet yet?

    We are sorry about that - a letter with further instructions on the study and a paper diary enclosed to help you take notes of your activities should be on its way!

    Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, our printing and mailing teams and the postal service aren’t working at full capacity to help prevent the spread of any infection. We are therefore experiencing some delays when sending things in the post. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but it is important that we protect the safety and wellbeing of our staff and yourselves.

    In the meantime, you can download a digital version of the paper diary here and of the activities list leaflet here.
