Our services

How we can help

Redkite supports children and teenagers (0-18) diagnosed with cancer, their parents, siblings, grandparents, carers, extended family, and their community.

Emotional & Mental Health Support

We help extended family members and friends manage any effect childhood cancer may have had on their emotions or mental health. Our support is flexible, relaxed, and personalised to each adult or child’s unique needs.

Practical support

We can connect you with the information, tools, and services you may need to support a family throughout their cancer experience. If you have questions about cancer, would like more information on how to support those affected, or need support yourself, our social workers can help.

Helping you help them

Sometimes, it can be hard to ask for help. Redkite’s mobile app, KiteCrew, is a tool you can use to help a family with the day-to-day tasks that are left behind when they’re focused on their child’s care.

Talk to us

Our friendly support team are here to help you access any support you may need. You can contact us via phone, email or webchat.

No matter what challenges a family may be facing, Redkite is here to help. We work with organisations all around Australia to make sure people affected by childhood cancer receive the support they need most.
