Kite Connectors: a new community of expertise



August 2016 Families are at the heart of everything Redkite does. That's why we've launched Kite Connectors - to continue to bring the voices of parents, young people and families into the development of our services, fundraising and communications.  


Kite Connectors is a community of generous people who've been personally affected by childhood or youth cancer. They'll draw on their experience to provide knowledge and advice in support of our work. 


If you're a young person who has had a cancer diagnosis, or a parent, carer, partner, grandparent or sibling of someone who has, we'd love to hear from you. By joining Kite Connectors, you can:
  • be involved in the development of Redkite support programs and fundraising activities
  • help us identify which services should be prioritised and where we can improve
  • work with us to communicate our services to other families
  • help our stakeholders understand the cancer experience and why our services make a difference
We'll send a monthly message to our Kite Connectors community, outlining projects and how you can help. Potential projects might involve: 
  • voting on ideas that could improve a Redkite service
  • providing insight into your experience, so we can convey this to donors and partners
  • feedback on possible designs of a new information booklet
If you'd like to contribute your unique perspective to help us improve what we do, contact us at with 'Kite Connectors' in the subject line, and we'll be in touch soon.
