An evaluation of support packs for young people 2019

The Redkite support pack for young people (or the ‘AYA Bag’) is a resource given at the point of a cancer diagnosis, containing age-appropriate information about managing school and work, considerations about fertility, and how to support family, friends and partners. The high quality duffel bag also contains practical items like toiletries, magazines and a reusable coffee cup. 

This resource was developed based on feedback from young people on what they most need at the time of diagnosis. The bag itself is made of high quality canvas, with many young people finding it useful when returning to hospital for future stays and appointments. As part of Redkite’s commitment to continually develop and improve our services, recipients of AYA Bags were invited to complete a short evaluation survey. 

 The objectives of this evaluation were to:

  • Gather feedback from young people aged between 12 and 24 years around the usefulness and relevance of its contents 
  • To measure the extent to which the AYA Bags were seen as contributing towards intended client outcomes including:
  • Improved access to support
  • Building skills, knowledge and access to resources
  • Feeling connected, supported and understood
  • The bags helping young people meet their immediate practical needs

A total of 77 young people returned a paper evaluation survey which was included in the AYA Bag. These bags were distributed to hospitals across Australia between October 2015 and August 2019.
