Important volunteering information


Overseas enquiries - as a national charity, Redkite cannot accept volunteer enquiries from those living outside of Australia.


Service based volunteering - due to the nature of Redkite's services for children and young people with cancer and their families, we cannot offer volunteer opportunities working directly with children or families, based in hospitals or within our support team.  


Youth volunteering – We cannot accept volunteers under the age of 18 for any of our committee or skilled volunteering roles. From time to time we have event volunteer opportunities which are suitable for youth volunteering, these opportunities will be highlighted on our marketing materials.
