There is so much going on in York for families – I can’t review it all alone! Plus I believe that it’s important to get a wide range of views over what is good to do in York for families – we all have different opinions after all and we’re looking for different things.
I am often asked to review classes, days out and theatre productions among other things so I’d love to get together a team of volunteer guest reviewers who can go along and try out things, then let the Mumblers know what they thought.
This normally means attending the event, show, class or attraction, taking photos, enjoying whatever it is and then writing a short review afterwards for the website which is then shared on social media. Reviews must be completed within 24 hours of enjoying the activity.
If you think this is something that you may like to get involved in, please do contact me HERE telling me how old your children are, where you live, any specific interests and what like about Mumbler. I’d also like you to write a short review (approx 500 words) for something you’ve done with the kids recently so I can see the style of your writing and what you cover. Do send any questions you may have at any point.
It is quite a good way to get back into work, keep your hand in during maternity leave or just experience some really cool things that you may not normally do with your kids.
We need volunteers to help in the following ways:
All volunteers need to complete a DBS check and attend a safeguarding training session. After this we ask for no minimum time commitment.
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 various volunteer roles to keep everything up to date on the website.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV attached and answer the following questions:
Thanks and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
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!
Here at York Mumbler we always have a lot of parents and carers looking for a wide range of roles, including full-time, part-time, temporary and even research opportunities for them to get involved with.

This is what volunteering for York NCT looks like. The York branch has a number of bumps and babies and coffee groups running regularly as well as a cloth nappy library. We also have a newsletter, a website (which really needs updating), regular Baby First Aid classes which are run in collaboration with the British Red Cross and we attend local events when we can to share information about support available through NCT.
Our volunteers meet when and where we can – often with toddlers and babies in tow to talk about what’s happening in branch and make decisions and plans for the coming months. Our very informal monthly meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month and we vary the times so that it happens on days and evenings to make it more accessible for different schedules. We have a number of volunteering opportunities available short term or long term from supporting the branch by lending your voice in meetings, taking on small administrative opportunities to picking up specific roles where you can spend a few hours a month helping the branch at times that suit you. We are a small team of friendly and supportive volunteers and would love to see some new faces so please get in touch via email@example.com if you have any questions or want to express an interest in getting involved. We welcome people to attend meet ups or informal meetings with no obligation to take on specific responsibilities.
