Kite Connectors: a new community of expertise



kite_connectors

 

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 stories@redkite.org.au with 'Kite Connectors' in the subject line, and we'll be in touch soon.
