Nightline is a confidential listening, information and sexual health supplies service, run by students for students. We are open from 8pm until 8am every night of the University of York term.
Nightline is staffed each night by two trained volunteers – one male and one female when possible. All of our volunteers are students of the University of York or York St John University, and include people from all disciplines and years.
Our organisation is 100% confidential. We don’t keep any records of individual callers, we won’t ask your name, and anything you choose to tell us will remain completely confidential. We are a listening service, not a counselling service, so we won’t try to tell you what to do. If you want to talk something over in a quiet and relaxed environment, or even if you just fancy a cup of tea or coffee and a chat, Nightline is here for you.
Although Nightline volunteers do not offer advice, we have a wide range of information, and can point you in the direction of someone who can. Have a look at our information pages for more details about the sort of information that Nightline can offer. In addition to information and listening, Nightline offers a range of sexual health supplies free of charge. These include condoms (including non-latex), lubricant, pregnancy tests and chlamydia test kits.
If you want to be a listening volunteer, you should...
Be committed to and passionate for providing the service
Have a high proficiency of spoken and written English
Be willing to remain anonymous and safeguard your anonymity and that of your fellow volunteer
