What is Livewire?

A free online community connecting teens aged 12-20 living with a chronic health condition, serious illness or disability (& their siblings) from 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!
