ABSUK Online Live Chat & Burn Support Zoom Social

Moderators may participate to ensure the smooth working of the live chat and may warn, ban or boot out a disruptive user if necessary. A transcript of each live session is kept by Adult Burn Support UK and information within the transcript may be reviewed by ABSUK staff, DFFB staff and/or Moderators for service usage statistics, to help improve and provide a better service, train and monitor moderators.
