Coffee Catch Ups: Fortnightly groups for families of children with cancer

This regular catch up is a relaxed and open forum where you can meet up with others via Zoom and talk about the unique challenges of childhood cancer. 

Families often tell us that facing childhood cancer can be an isolating experience. These coffee catch ups are an opportunity to connect regularly with a supportive network of people in a similar situation.

Each session is facilitated by two Redkite social workers, who will start off the conversation with a topic chosen by the group. This begins a casual conversation where participants have the opportunity to share their thoughts and experiences. If you’d prefer to join and just listen, that’s ok too.

This group is for you if:

  • You are an adult connected to a child 0-18 years old who has a cancer diagnosis
  • Diagnosed child is on treatment or has finished treatment in the last 12 months
  • You want to meet and talk with other adults in a similar situation

New attendees are welcome and encouraged to attend.

How do the Coffee Catch Ups work?

Each fortnight, a mix of new and returning people join two Redkite social workers to talk about a topic that’s been on their minds. Topics have included: 

  • Ideas for self-care
  • Caring for a child through treatment
  • Transitioning between treatment stages
  • General sharing – what’s happening with you and your family

You are welcome to attend each fortnight, or irregularly as it suits you and your schedule. There are no commitments required and you are welcome back at any stage.

Once you register, we’ll send you a link that you can use to join the session. You’ll need a phone, tablet or computer that supports Zoom.

If you have any questions about our coffee catch ups, please get in touch.
