What is Livewire?

A free online community connecting teens living with illness or disability, & their siblings, in Australia or New Zealand.

Whether you’re home or in hospital, you can make friends, share stories, laugh, have a vent, and be yourself. Our moderated chat is live 12pm-12am every day, plus live streaming, games, videos, comps and more! It’s peer support done differently 😊

Ready. Set. Go!
