Struggling with worries regarding Covid-19, university work, or any other problems? Newcastle University Students’ Union’s Nightline service is a confidential and anonymous listening and information service, run by students for the benefit of students. Available during term between 20:00 and 02:00, you can contact them any night of term to talk about how you’re feeling or request information about other services.
No problem is too big or too small for Nightline: they’re simply here to listen about whatever is on your mind. They won’t judge you, and they won’t advise you on what to do next: that choice is left entirely up to you. What they will do is give you a space to explore how you’re feeling in complete confidentiality, when friends or family may not be awake, and other services may not be available. They’re here whenever you need them, so do get in touch: they’ll listen, not lecture.
Furthermore, if you would like to do something to help your fellow students you can also volunteer for Nightline. You don’t need prior experience: all they ask is that you come with the right attitude; Nightline’s extensive weekend-long training programme will cover the rest. Once trained, you’ll have ongoing support and retraining opportunities throughout your time with Nightline.
