Homeshare Interviewees for my PhD

Laura Paddon 22/07/19 General Housing Topics


My name is Laura Paddon a PhD researcher at the University of Southampton, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. My doctoral research is exploring the experiences of homesharers - homesharing is where an older person rents out a room at a reduced rate in exchange for household chores and informal care.

I am looking to interview people involved in homesharing arrangements. Interviews would consist of a walking tour of the homesharer's home where they will take photographs of items and spaces significant to them and we will discuss the photographs after in the interview, which will take approximately one hour.

If anyone is involved in homesharing and would like to take part in an interview, or knows anyone who is involved in homesharing and would like to take part, please contact me on [log in to view email address]. Please also email me for more information about my project or what will be required of you if you wish to take part.

Kind regards and thank you for your time,

Laura Paddon
