How we help

If you’re looking for help, you’re in the right place.

Cancer is hard but getting help doesn’t have to be. There’s a whole new language to learn, emotions to deal with, extra expenses to juggle and new routines to organise. It can feel overwhelming, but we’re here to help.

We’re childhood cancer support specialists. You can talk to us about anything and everything.

Our support is flexible, confidential and free to anyone connected to a child with cancer. You can connect with us whenever and however works best for you, and for as long as you want or need.

There’s nothing like talking to someone… we’re here to listen.

Contact Redkite

There is so much to organise and figure out when your child is diagnosed with cancer. But cancer is unpredictable, so all your planning can be thrown out the window in a moment.

We have all sorts of practical help, information and support to help you plan for the long term and stay on top of things when new challenges pop up.

The cost of cancer adds up. There’s hospital parking, accommodation and travel if you’re away from home, as well as the extra medical costs, not to mention the cost of taking time off work.

We can work with you to help relieve some of the financial pressure, as well as provide financial support for your family.
