Providing real support to children, young people and their families through cancer has remained Redkite's single focus for 30 years.
Redkite supports children and young people with cancer (up to the age of 24), and their families. Currently there are approximately 11,000 families in Australia with a child or young person experiencing the cancer journey. Redkite is there with real and practical support for the whole family from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and when families return home to the community.
Redkite's support services include financial assistance, emotional support and education assistance. Financial assistance includes grants to help with expenses and financial counselling. Emotional support within the hospital environment is provided through social workers and music therapists, and support within the community includes telephone and email counselling, bereavement support and family days.
Children, young people and their families from all major cities, regional areas and remote locations across Australia are supported by Redkite. With the continuing support of the community, Redkite aims to further expand our services in order to offer equity of care and support to all Australian children and young people with cancer.
Redkite receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of the community to provide these important services.
