A multidisciplinary approach…Redkite’s on your team.

Health workers know better than anyone that a child with cancer needs a whole support network to keep their family strong and functioning. Our Oncology Social Workers are a resource you can call to help with referrals, counselling, financial assistance to families, and more. We’re in this, together.

For referrals and everything else email or call us Monday-Friday, 9am-7pm (AEST).
