Regular virtual coffee groups for families of children with cancer

We’re all feeling isolated right now. Our Coffee Catch Ups are relaxed and open groups where you can meet up with others via video and talk about the unique challenges of having a child with cancer.

Emmy, Sam and Lis, three of our Redkite Social Workers, would like to invite you to catch up with other parents over coffee via video.

Many parents are still telling us how isolation is making life hard and how the new challenges are making an impact on their lives. That’s why we’re running our Coffee Catch Ups where you can connect with others in a similar situation.

If you have a child on treatment or who is up to six months post-treatment, you can register below.


Fortnightly Coffee Catch Up


Facilitators: Sam & Lis

Date: Tuesday, every 2 weeks

Time: 12:30 pm (AEDT)

How do the Coffee Catch Ups work?

We will be logging on each week (either Tuesday or Wednesday) to chat with each other about any topic that interests you, for example:  

  • Share ideas for self-care
  • Hearing other parents’ experiences of caring for their child through treatment
  • Transitioning between treatment stages

You are welcome to attend each week, or fortnightly on the day that works best for you.

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

Some people like to have a photo of their family to share, and others also like to think about what they want to say about what’s going on in their lives at the moment.
