Connect Group: My child was recently diagnosed

We know that the first few months after receiving a diagnosis is an extremely challenging time. It can be overwhelming to manage such drastic change while also trying to focus on the care of your child and your family. 

This connect group is an informal online catch-up for parents, guardians and carers who are at a similar stage in their cancer journey. 

With Redkite social workers Sam and Emmy there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, discuss challenges and learn strategies that others have found useful. If you’d rather turn off your camera and just listen, that’s okay too!

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent/guardian/carer of a child 0-18 years old who has a cancer diagnosis
  • Your child was diagnosed in the last 6 months
  • You want to meet and talk with other parents/guardians/carers whose children have also been recently diagnosed
