Connect Group for Dads

This Connect Group is an informal online catch-up for dads where they can meet and talk to other dads of children with cancer. 

With two Redkite Social Workers there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, discuss challenges and learn strategies that others have found useful.

We welcome all dads and father figures and encourage new attendees to join. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

Topics include:

  • The impacts of treatment on your child, both physical and emotional
  • How treatment might affect your parenting and family routines
  • Managing expectations and emotions
  • Relationships and communication with your partner and/or significant people in your life

We also welcome you to talk about any other topics you’d like to discuss.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a dad (or step-dad/father figure) of a child aged 0-18 who has a cancer diagnosis
  • Your child is currently on treatment or has finished treatment within the last 12 months
  • You want to meet and talk with other dads having similar challenges and experiences

  • Usually held at 5.30pm (AEST)
  • Online (using Zoom)
  • Facilitated by two Redkite Social Workers
