Sussex Nightline – a confidential listening service run for students by Sussex students

Have you heard of Sussex Nightline?
 
Sussex Nightline is a confidential listening service run for students by Sussex students. It offers non-judgmental and non-advisory support for its callers, no matter what situation they are in. Nightline accepts all calls, be it for a casual chat or to support those who are really struggling. It runs overnight while other services are closed and students are often at their most vulnerable. 
 
Sussex Nightline is open from 10pm – 2am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during term time. You can call to speak to a volunteer on +44 1273 873 216.
 
You can find more information on Instagram on @SussexNightline
 
Interested in volunteering? 
 
Sussex Nightline would like to invite you to a Volunteer Information Session on the 8th of December from 6:30pm in the Meeting House on campus (the round building with coloured windows opposite the Library).
 
This session will give you an overview of Nightline, your commitment as a volunteer, volunteer welfare and training sessions. You’ll get a chance to ask any questions you may have and at the end of the session, you will be able to sign-up as a Sussex Nightline volunteer!
 
Sussex Nightline will be organising two full days of training for volunteers to take calls on the 21st and 28th of January on campus, running from 10am to 6pm. Training will be comprehensive as callers may be reaching out with a wide range of issues to make sure volunteers know what to expect in any situation! You must be able to attend the entirety of both sessions to become a volunteer.
 
If you would like to attend the Volunteer Information session, please RSVP on nightline@sussexstudent.com
 
As Nightline is an anonymous service, please do not tell anyone that you are volunteering on the phones as everyone should feel comfortable calling the service without being concerned about confidentiality.
