Geographical remit: 


The Nightline Association was established in 2006 as an umbrella charity to support, promote and develop university Nightline services.

Our vision:

For every student in higher and further education to have access to the support offered by Nightline services so that:

  • every student is able to talk about their feelings in a safe, non-judgmental environment;
  • fewer students have their education compromised by emotional difficulties;
  • fewer students die by suicide.

Our mission:

To raise the quality, profile, availability, and accessibility of Nightline services so that every student is aware of, and has access to, confidential emotional peer support, as well as the opportunity to volunteer for a Nightline.


Nightline services work on the frontlines; they are our student volunteers answering calls and offering a listening ear. They are operational.

The Association works on a more strategic level; supporting new set-ups, developing external relationships, overseeing our Good Practice Guidelines accreditation, maintaining our IT services and representing the student voice. We host events every year which offer training and networking opportunities for our affiliated services, as well as host our Council and AGM sessions.
