Red Bag Evaluation 2021

Across Australia, Redkite provides essential support to children with cancer, and their families and support networks.

It’s vital that when life is turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis, families receive practical support. Once an oncologist has spoken with a family, a social worker or cancer care coordinator will give them a Redkite Red Bag with practical items to help ‘lighten the load’ during this stressful early stage.

This important resource was developed based on feedback from families on what they most need at the time of diagnosis. The bag itself is made of high-quality canvas, so many people find it useful when they return to the hospital for future stays and appointments. As part of Redkite’s commitment to continually develop and improve our services, all recipients of Red Bags are invited to complete a short evaluation survey.

The objectives

 The objectives of this evaluation were to:

  • Gather feedback from families around the usefulness and relevance of the Red Bag’s contents
  • Understand to what extent the Red Bag contributes to the following outcomes for all clients:
  • Empowerment – families are confident and equipped to navigate the impacts of childhood cancer
  • Connection – families have meaningful connections throughout their child’s cancer experience

The survey

A total of 41 families completed a survey which was included in Red Bags distributed to paediatric hospitals across Australia between August 2019 and July 2021.
