How we help

Help paying for bills, groceries, and petrol

With our online Financial Assistance Program, we can help families and independent teenagers pay for household bills, groceries, car costs, and more.

Redkite and Coles Dare to Dream Scholarship

The annual Dare to Dream Scholarship offers up to $5,000 to teens aged 13-18 who have been diagnosed with cancer at any point in their life to help them achieve a goal that’s important to them.

Help managing your finances

We can help you identify and apply for any other financial help or advice you may need. This includes practical support and talking to the government and other organisations on your behalf.

The financial services have been great. Even just sometimes when it’s my $80 phone bill. I’m like, I don’t have to worry about that. (There’s) peace of mind to know that Redkite is there to help, and that’s really gone a long way.
