Coffee Catch Ups: Fortnightly group for parents and carers

Families often tell us that facing childhood cancer can be an isolating experience. Redkite’s Coffee Catch Ups are an opportunity to connect regularly with a supportive network of people who understand.

These groups are held once every two weeks and are facilitated by two Redkite social workers. They are a safe, relaxed, and open forum where you can meet other parents and carers and talk about the unique challenges of childhood cancer. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

We welcome new and returning participants and you are free 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.

Topics include:

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

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

This group is for you if:

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

Register now on myRedkite to attend this group
