Basic Information

Welcome to the 2021 Nightline hotline volunteer training registration form. This form consists of 6 pages and will take about 20 minutes for you to complete. Thanks for your interest in Nightline!
 
You don't need any prior experience to apply - just enthusiasm and the willingness to help other students. We'd rather give a place to someone inexperienced and passionate over someone experienced who isn't passionate. There are a limited number of places available, and we do unfortunately have to turn students down.
 
Pre-selection training takes place across 3 weeks and at the end of Week 3 there is an assessment on the practical application of what you've learned. Near misses at the assessment will be offered some bespoke training and the chance to be reassessed.
 
We are hoping that the training this year will be a combination of in-person and online, using a mix of Zoom, presentations, and group work. In-person location TBC.

Applicants can choose which of the following streams they'd prefer to train in. All dates are in October.

Note: Stream 4 is entirely online and priority will be given to students who have access requirements, are distance-learners within the UK, or who have caring responsibilities (other reasons may also apply). 


Stream 1 (Sundays, 11am-2pm) 03/10/21 10/10/21 17/10/21
Stream 2 (Sundays, 3pm-6pm) 03/10/21 10/10/21 17/10/21
Stream 3 (Tuesdays, 5:30-8:30pm) 05/10/21 12/10/21 19/10/21
Stream 4 (Thursdays, 5:30-8:30pm, **online**)  07/10/21 14/10/21 21/10/21
 

All applicants who pass the week 3 appraisal
will then be invited to attend the compulsory post-selection training weekend

Post-Selection Training Weekend (Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm) 23/10/21 24/10/21

 

Please save these dates in your diary now. 
 
London Nightline's service relies on volunteers taking phonecalls and Instant Messages within our Zone 1 office, as well as volunteers working remotely taking Instant Messages. Whilst our service is most reliant on volunteers working within the office, we're also accepting a smaller number of applications from volunteers who can only work remotely. We encourage in particular those who live outside the M25, those with caring responsibilities, those who are shielding from the virus, or those who cannot walk up stairs unassisted to apply for those places. 
 
Please note that we cannot accept volunteering applications from those who live outside of the UK. This is due to health & safety reasons, and the requirement that volunteers are able to contact the emergency services

Please fill out this first page with your basic information. We will use your contact details to contact you about training, so please enter them carefully.

We reserve the right to perform a DBS check. If we perform one, we will cover the cost.
 
Please note, the final deadline for submitting an application is 17:00 Friday the 24th of September, but we will be allocating places for those that apply early.
