Nightline is a confidential, anonymous listening and information service provided by student volunteers. Our service provides a safe environment which our users feel able to talk about their concerns and feelings without fear of judgement. We uphold no political, religious, ethnic or cultural bias.

You can contact us through any of the following services we offer:

 

Phone: our number is on the back of your student card

A non-judgemental, friendly and empathetic ear. Our phone lines are open from 8pm to 8am every night during term time. Whether you’d like to talk through a concern or simply have a chat, Nightline is always here to listen. No problem is too big or small, and we’ll always listen, not lecture.

We are a non-advisory service, but we can provide information. This can be anything from takeaway and taxi numbers to specialist services.

 

Text: 07786 207 208

Our text service is brand new and was launched in November 2016. It operates during term time from 8pm to midnight. The anonymising software prevents your number from showing up when we receive your text message. We will always aim to reply within 24 hours.

 

Email:[email protected]

Prefer to email? That’s absolutely fine! Our email service is open 24/7, 365 days a year and is our only service that operates outside of term time. Our anonymiser software ensures that volunteers cannot see your email address. We will always aim to reply within 48 hours.

 

Instant Messenger

Similar to our e-listening and text services, contact details are made anonymous to ensure all conversations are 100% confidential. Replies are instant and the service is open from 8pm to midnight during term time, subject to volunteer availability.
