How can Redkite help you?

Redkite exists to support you and your family face the challenges caused by childhood cancer. But how do we do that?

Those who have not experienced childhood cancer often aren’t aware of how it affects every part of life: your emotional and mental wellbeing, your career, your finances and your relationships. The reason Redkite exists is to support families through what may be the toughest time of your lives. But how do we do that?

Here are the four areas where Redkite can help:

I was going to bed crying, because I didn’t want to put any pressure on the kids. I then joined a Dads Connect Group. It was good to catch up with others in the same situation. I was keeping a lot of things inside. Now, I have learned to speak more

These four areas form Redkite’s Outcomes Framework for families, which ensures Redkite’s programs focus on improving the overall quality of life for everyone affected by childhood cancer.
