Nightline is intended for users over the age of 18.

We are devastated to hear about the tragic passing of UoB student Joseph Derbisz. All of us at Birmingham Nightline are sending our deepest love and sympathy to all of Joe’s friends and family.
We can appreciate that this is heartbreaking news even for those who didn’t know Joe personally, and we hope that everyone is able to access support in whatever way they need in this difficult time. As always, we are here for you; our IM service is open 8pm-1am every night, and our email service is open 24/7, should you wish to reach out. You can find our contact information here:

Take care 💙 

What is Nightline?

Nightline is a confidential listening and information service, run by students, for students. Student life can be tough, and our volunteers are ready to support you. We are a confidential, anonymous, non-judgemental and non-advisory service.


Volunteering with Birmingham Nightline is an extremely rewarding experience, and we’re always looking for enthusiastic students to join our team of volunteers.
