Bart – LW

Tell us about yourself

Hey, I am Bart! I work as a Chat Host and Livewire In Hospital facilitator. As a chat-host, my role is to facilitate and monitor social interaction by members, encouraging all members to help create a safe and fun place for all other members. I also combine by roles online and In-Hospital to run creative competitions, exhibitions and encourage members to take part in many creative outlets, such as being involved with the Livewire Zine.

How long have you been on LW for? 

I have been with LW for over 5 years!

What does LW mean to you?

LW is a safe place for all young people with an illness of some kind, to engage in social interaction that may be lacking in their immediate lives, without the fear of being judged, criticized or misunderstood. It’s a space that offers many opportunities to young people, from gaining help, socially, to being offered the chance to guide and mentor others. I’m proud to be a part of a social media tool that is so positive.
