About

About

Leeds Nightline first started in 1973 and since then has been constantly evolving. In the past forty years we have continued to develop and expand our services to provide the best support available for students. This is achieved through the provision of our listening and information telephone line and more recently online, using ‘Instant Messaging’ (IM).

Leeds Nightline supports students from all over Leeds including those studying at the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Trinity, the Northern School of Contemporary Dance and other higher education institutions.

Our successes were recognised by both:

1.) The Nightline Association, which oversees all other Nightlines around the UK. They voted/nominated us:

  • Most Improved Nightline (2012)
  • Nightline of the Year (2013)
  • Nominated for Best Volunteer Welfare (2015)
  • Nominated for Best Volunteer Training and Support (2017)
  • Nominated for Best Publicity Event or Campaign (2017)
  • Nominated for Most Innovative Nightline (2017)
  • Best Volunteer Welfare (2017)
  • Nightline of the Year (2018)
  • Nominated for Best Volunteer Training (2019)
  • Most Innovative Nightline (2019)
  • Best Nightline Awareness Week (2019)

2.) Leeds University Union (LUU) – where our Nightline is based. LUU awards and nominates its best societies for Riley awards, our awards/nominations are listed below:

  • Riley Award – Special Recognition For Committees (2017)
  • Riley Award – Best Volunteering (2017)
  • Nominated for Best Society (Welfare) (2018)
  • Nominated for Best Publicity (2018)
  • Riley Award – Inclusivity Award (2018)
  • Riley Award – Special Recognition For Committees (2018)
  • Nominated for Best New Society Collaboration (2019)
  • Nominated for Best Publicity (2019)
  • Nominated for Best Welfare Society (2019)

This is testament to the fantastic efforts of our Nightliners who man the phones and IM service each night of University of Leeds term-time. We are incredibly proud of each individual’s dedication to the organisation. The society is led by a committee of 19 volunteers, who are each responsible for different areas within Nightline. We also have a mascot – Nigel the Owl – who you’ll spot at our publicity drives! Nigel also starred in one of our promotional videos, where he visited other Leeds societies. You can watch the video on our facebook page, linked below.
