Welcome to the Volunteering website

Interested in Joining the Team?

We're currently recruiting for both listening volunteers and publicity ambassadors to join Surrey Nightline.

To be eligible to volunteer you must be 18 or over and a registered student at the University of Surrey.

Due to the resources invested in training a listening volunteer, we are not able to offer this training to students in their final semester.

Listening Volunteers

As a listening volunteer, you'll go through an extensive research-based training programme (minimum 17 hours total), developing skills you can use your whole life to support those around you.

Listening for Nightline can of course be challenging, but equally rewarding. The welfare of our listening volunteers is a core Nightline priority, so you will have many different avenues for support whenever you need it.

You will be trained in many skills and will get many chances to practise before taking a real call. You don't need any prior experience, just a willingness to learn and a respect for confidentiality. You must also be fluent in English.

Interested? Please read the volunteer info pack HERE  for more information. Once you've read through the pack, if you'd like to become a listening volunteer, download the application form HERE and return to ussu.nightline@surrey.ac.uk

The deadline for applications to Cycle 2 is Monday 5th March, however applying earlier will improve your chances of being selected as we will stop accepting applications once the course is full.

Please remember that our listening volunteers are anonymous and therefore must not discuss their application process with anyone.

Publicity Ambassadors

As a publicity ambassador you'll be part of a team responsible for raising awareness of the service. You'll have the opportunity to organise events, fundraise, design promotional material and publicise the service using creativity and passion.

It's a great opportunity to gain some experience in PR and Communications, whilst helping a really valuable service! All the while you are encouraged to have fun; we want the Nightline volunteer community to be all about friendship, support and enjoying what we do.

Interested? Please read the volunteer pack HERE for more information and email ussu.nightline@surrey.ac.uk to register your interest.
