At the End of the Line: Students helping students

Dr Ann Conlon

Every year thousands of people across London phone up a student-run listening service in order to talk about the problems and issues that they are facing, or simply to just have someone to talk to. On the other end of the line they receive an impartial, non-judgemental and empathetic ear for as long as they want throughout the night – a service that will sometimes make all the difference.

Open between 6pm-8am during term time, Nightline is a confidential listening support and information service for, and ran by, students in London. The nightly volunteers are all current students, which means that callers speak to someone who understands the stresses and pressures of university life.

Dr Ann Conlon, Chair of Trustees of London Nightline, explains the work of this unusual and little-known service.

This is a part of the Mondays at One series of lectures on 'London After Dark'. The other lectures in this series are:
    Saving Londoner's Lives
    Your night is my day: London's underground never sleeps
    London at Night: Spirituality and the dark side
