The Calls

As soon as you hear “Hello, Niteline…”, you can be sure that the volunteer at the end of the line will listen without judging or directing you and in complete confidence.

While there is no such thing as a typical call or a typical caller these are a few issues which often come up:

  • Academic concerns
  • Addiction
  • Body Image Issues
  • Loneliness
  • Rape and Abuse
  • Relationships & Family Issues
  • Suicide

Some people talk about many different things, some people talk about nothing, some people don’t talk at all. We don’t have all the answers but we can give details of the many support services available to help you if you need them.

Our volunteers’ training is such that they are in a position to embrace any issue brought up by a caller. We won’t judge you or tell you how to run your life: we’ll simply listen to whatever is on your mind. Callers will have the time and space to talk through anything they would like to no matter how big or small. You can call if you simply feel like having a chat or need the number for a taxi after a night out.

If you have used our service and would like to leave some feedback, you can fill out the survey here.
