Single mothers needed for a 15-minute interview about barriers to employment faced by single parents.

The interview is for a story being written for a postgraduate journalism assignment about the rising proportion of jobless single parents, according to new figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

If you are a single mother who is willing to add your voice to the story- perhaps by telling me why it's harder to find or keep a job as a single parent, or what additional services are required to support this, I'd love to hear from you.

The interview will take place in your home or neighbourhood in Melbourne this week (June 4-8)- preferably in the morning- and you will be given a $30 Coles Myer voucher for your time.

As the article is for an assignment it's unlikely to be published, except perhaps on the journalist's website.

Please contact Grace on or 0415961404 to arrange a time.
