Good Night Owl Scheme Launched!

As a part of our wider work on Zero Tolerance and in conjunction with withthe Good Night Out Campaign, we’re piloting a scheme which involves a team of students (Good Night Owls) volunteering in town on Wednesday nights to offer assistance to vulnerable students. 

We’re looking for 12 students to take part in this pilot scheme. The role of Good Night Owls includes manning stalls at various night clubs in town and assisting vulnerable students, giving them water and signposting to safer spaces and services for reporting and further support. 

The skills and support that students who take part will receive include: 

  • Skills to deal with and communicating with people in distress or who are vulnerable 
  • Knowledge of how to provide initial assistance and assess whether further help and advice are required
  • First aid training
  • Welfare training 

Read the full role description here and sign up to become a Good Night Owls by filling in this form. Below is a list of important dates to attend if you want to be part of the scheme.
