I am currently a student. As part of my degree course I need to submit a research project. I am researching the experience of women who currently head up households alone. I am hoping to speak to about ten or fifteen women about their experiences and choices. If you are the main carer for at least one child of school age or younger, and you don’t live with a partner at the moment, then I would very much like to speak to you.

If you would be interested in participating in my study I would ensure the confidentiality of what you say during the interview. Although I will use what you say to write up my research, each participant will be given a different name to make sure your identity is protected. This is a completely independent study.

We can arrange to meet in a place and at a time that is convenient for you. I would hope to speak to you for about an hour as I do not wish to take up too much of your time. I am hoping to speak to people before the end of August if possible.

I would be very grateful for your time if you decide to participate in my research. If you are interested or would like to find out more get back to me here or email me at

If you know anyone else that may be interested in participating please do give them my email. I look forward to hearing from you.

er. have you posted this in lone parents?

as a researcher, that's where i'd start looking for single mums.... rather than in student parents?
