“Listening to someone who is perhaps depressed, worried, frightened and / or suicidal and who doesn’t know where to turn to, is perhaps the most valuable thing we can do for a fellow human being.”
Niteline volunteers are both male and female, from all the colleges and represent all the faculties. Volunteers are students themselves. They are in a position to understand the pressures of college life and to relate to the problems that students can face.
Volunteers are required to be discreet about their involvement in Niteline. Volunteers are chosen for their ability to listen and accept rather than for any professional qualifications that they might have.
