University of York – ‘I hear your emotions’ project is looking for participants

York Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) invites 1- to 12-months-old babies and their parents to participate in the project ‘I hear your emotions’.

Detecting and telling apart the emotions shown by the people around us is a crucial skill for our social lives. Our project focuses on understanding how the baby brain develops to detect and differentiate between different emotions expressed in the voice. By discovering how babies learn about others’ emotions, we hope to find out how to foster children’s social and emotional wellbeing.

Participating in this project involves one visit to the University of York. During the research session, your baby will hear voices of other babies or of adults with different emotional intonations (e.g., happy, sad, angry). In order to record how the brain responds to these sounds, your baby will wear a special hat with sensors embedded in it (like the one shown in the picture). The hat is specifically designed for babies and it is comfortable to wear. The sensors are not harmful. They only capture the weak signal coming from the brain, in a similar way to the sensors present in smart watches for recording the heart activity. The research session lasts approximately one hour and you will be with your baby at all times.
Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.

If you have a baby 1- to 12-months-old and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form HERE.

The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.
Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.

In case you would like to find out more before signing up, please contact us at: psychology-dsn-lab@york.ac.uk

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Join the York Mumbler Team!

York Mumbler is the go-to place for families in York. The website is visited over 20,000 times per month and our facebook group has almost 19,000 members.

We get a huge number of enquiries every week from local people and businesses who want to work with York Mumbler and we want to make sure we are giving everyone a high quality level of service.

I’m looking for people who are passionate about Mumbler and want to join the team!

We are recruiting for various volunteers to help admin the facebook group and also 1 person to work with Emily on the advertising side of the business which will be a paid role.

Sales / Advertising role: 

The ideal candidate will be someone with high levels of confidence and great communications skills, as well as being really organised. You need to be good with detail and take pride in doing a job well.  You’ll be required to give really high quality responses to advertising enquiries & have the ability to think about other people’s needs for their organisation. Sales experience would be great but it’s not essential… it’s not about cold calling (we never do this) but it’s about responding to organisations well and ensuring the promotion on Mumbler is right for them.

The details of the role (hours, pay, location etc) are to be confirmed as it will be dependant on the skills and lifestyle requirements of the successful applicant (The hours can work around your own childcare needs… school hours, flexible etc) but it will be broadly 12 hours per week and likely to be around the living wage pay on a sub-contract basis.

Volunteers:

90% of what we do on Mumbler is free of charge and I want to keep it that way. It’s free for people to use both the website and the Facebook group and most businesses can have a free listing somewhere on the website as long as there is a relevant area. This takes a lot of time and upkeep so I’m looking for volunteers to help with the running of the facebook group and the website.

The details of the volunteer roles can be altered based on the applicants own personal passion areas and experience. Anything can be taught but I want to hear from people who love mumbler and want to make life easier for parents in York.

Working and volunteering for Mumbler would suit someone wanting to combine work with bringing up children in York and with a passion for making family life easier.

To apply to be part of the York Mumbler Family just e-mail emily@mumbler.co.uk with your CV attached and answer the following questions:

  1. Describe York Mumbler – what it means to you and the parents of York.
  2. Why do you want to work or volunteer for York Mumbler?
  3. How would your boss (past or present) describe you in no more than 10 words?
  4. How would your friends or family describe you in no more than 10 words?

Thanks and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Martin House Children’s Hospice- Volunteers

Every year, Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People cares for over 400 families – but we also need your support!

Martin House, which supports children and young people with life-limiting conditions, is looking for volunteers to help our fundraising across York.

The money you help to raise will make a real difference to the lives of the families we support. For example, raising £500 could pay for a parents’ support group, which gives mums and dads a place to relax, try new activities and share experiences with others in a similar situation.

Martin House provides respite stays at our hospice in Boston Spa, as well as providing care in hospital and in their own homes. Our care also includes emergency stays and end of life care, as well as bereavement support for the whole family.

It costs £22,000 a day to run Martin House, and most of that has to be raised by voluntary donations and fundraising, so the support of our communities is vital.

You may be able to host a collection tin at your place of work or have a silly dressing up day. There are also lots of other events in York including coffee mornings and bake sales and you are more than welcome to be involved if you can spare the time.

We also have a shop in Acomb where you can donate your unwanted items, or volunteer your time. If you have the time, we have an opportunity for you!

To find out more, contact Becky Nicholson, Regional Fundraiser, at bnicholson@martinghouse.org.uk or phone 07827 959684.


Kyra Women’s Project Volunteer – Supporting women to make change

Do you have a few hours spare on a regular basis and are you passionate about helping women to improve their lives?
Volunteers at Kyra all have one thing in common – they care deeply about supporting women to grow and make positive change in their lives.
We have various volunteer roles available, including drop-in support, craft activities support, course facilitators, admin’, social media, events organisers and more.

We also invite our whole volunteer team to our monthly shared supper and meeting.
Kyra supports women who may be emotionally vulnerable or who are looking for help to improve their well-being. Our members might be struggling with confidence or self-esteem following a period of difficulty, may be in recovery from addiction or from domestic abuse, managing mental health difficulties, including anxiety and depression, rebuilding their lives following loss or bereavement, or may simply want to feel less socially isolated… in fact, there is no typical woman who accesses Kyra’s services – every woman is unique.
Kyra offers a variety of courses, drop-ins, creative classes, counselling, alternative therapies, access to financial and legal advice – our range of services continues to grow year on year.
Due to the nature of the support Kyra gives, all volunteers need DBS clearance.
Volunteer applications are restricted to women due to the nature of the volunteer roles. The Occupational Requirement under Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.
