Nightline Awareness Week starts this Monday, 15 November, with a wide range of events taking place over the course of 7 days.

The Nightline Association is a national setup, acting as a confidential listening service operated by trained student volunteers, operating from 8pm to 8am every night during the semesters.

Becky Mayne, 22, who is the Public Face of Nightline, said: “Next week will be the biggest Nightline Awareness Week we’ve ever done and this year, we’ve taken our events to the next level.

“Because we support students both at The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, we have events happening every day at each university.

“Services such as this one are there to provide a safe space for people to talk about their worries, concerns and anxieties and this week will help raise awareness for what we do.”

Some of the events throughout the week include a pub quiz, yoga session, online bake-along and a Nightline-themed ROAR, the student night at The University of Sheffield.

There will also be message boards located around the student unions where people can leave positive notes to others who may be struggling.

Miss Mayne added: “In the past year, we’ve faced unprecedented challenges and I think some people would argue students have bore the brunt throughout the pandemic.

“For me, it’s been the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. It gives me such a sense of purpose being able to support people at such a vulnerable point and it’s such a moving journey to be a part of.”
