Redkite supports children, teenagers and young adults with cancer (up to the age of 24), and their families. Redkite is available with real and practical support 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 in hospitals 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.
