The vast majority of our volunteers are anonymous, both for the benefit of our callers and for the welfare of our volunteers. So, who exactly are we? Edinburgh Nightline is made up of around 100 student volunteers from all four universities in Edinburgh, from various disciplines and various years, both undergraduate and postgraduate.
Six of our committee are what we call public faces. Due to the nature of their work with us they must be able to speak publicly as a representative of Edinburgh Nightline. During the volunteer’s time in this position they don’t take calls. The six positions fall across three roles: Coordinator, Networking Coordinator, and Publicity, Fundraising & Events Coordinator.
