 Volunteer with Redkite


Volunteering for Redkite is both fun and rewarding. You'll meet new and interesting people and feel great knowing that you’re helping to improve the lives of children and young people with cancer and their families.


Right across the Australia, we have opportunities for you to get involved. Be it volunteering in one of our four regional offices or supporting our packed program of fundraising events, we’d love to welcome you into the Redkite community.

The Redkite Family Wellbeing Program at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead provides practical and emotional support to families on the ward and in the out-patient clinic. Our small team of volunteer beauty therapists, massage therapists and hairdressers offer much needed respite to parents whose child is receiving cancer treatment at the hospital.

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.
