Anyone with a baby less than two months old is eligible to take part in the 18-month study into child development and wellbeing. They will receive high street shopping vouchers of up to £70 as a thank-you for participating.

Tracey Bywater, principal investigator at the University of York, said: ‘The E-SEE study will find out if a new form of support for parents called the Incredible Years programme benefits the wellbeing of parents and their babies.’

Families can apply until December 22. Visit e-see-trial.org.
