Cardiff Nightline is a student-led listening service that is available for students of Cardiff on Wednesdays and Saturdays, contactable via phone and instant messaging service. Call us on 02920 870555 from 8pm-8am or message us using the link at the bottom of the page from 8pm-12am. If you’d like someone to talk to outside of these times, Samaritans are available 24/7 on 116 123.


A problem shared is a problem halved; we can provide information and offer a listening ear to students. Our service is non-directive, non-judgmental and non-advisory.


Our five principles are:

  1. Confidentiality
  2. Anonymity
  3. Non-judgmental
  4. Non-directional
  5. Non-advisory


We host two intakes of volunteers every year (Freshers and Refrehsers), if you’re interested in volunteering with us, follow the link at the bottom of the page and we’ll contact you when a new intake opens.


We are a member of the Nightline Association, a charity that helps to support Nightlines throughout the UK.


The first Nightline was set up in 1970 at Essex University by a lecturer and Chaplain who both noticed the high levels of stress and anxiety amongst the students. They trained a small group of students to provide emotional support over the phone, offering a listening ear to the day-to-day struggles of their fellow students. There are now over thirty-six Nightlines across the UK and Ireland, with over two thousand student volunteers trained to deliver this confidential listening service.
