Tell Us About Your Experience of
Dampness and Mould in an Australian Home

Call for Research Participants Aged 18+

My name is Lisa Coulburn, and I am a PhD Candidate at Queensland University of Technology, seeking participants who have experienced issues with either condensation, dampness, water damage, water leaks, flooding, or mould in an Australian home and identify as having a mould-related illness or symptoms.

As a participant you will be asked to complete an anonymous survey either online or via a downloadable PDF. You will be asked questions about this home, issues with dampness and/or mould in this home, and how these issues may have affected your life in terms of your health and economic wellbeing.

The survey may take between 40 and 90 minutes to complete but may take longer depending on your level of health. The survey can be saved and completed within your own timeframe.

Participants will have the opportunity to enter a draw to win 1 of 20, $50 Coles e-vouchers to acknowledge their valuable contribution. The prize draw and survey will run over 3 months and close on the 20th September 2021.

Participation in this study is entirely voluntary.
