Call 1800 REDKITE for support now or request a callback
We understand a child’s cancer can impact everyone’s mental health – from immediate family to friends and loved ones. If you want to talk, we’re here to listen. Give us a call 9am-7pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
Anyone who has a relationship with a child with cancer
Phone, email, video or in-person from 9am-7pm, Monday to Friday
Confidential, ongoing or one-off support
If we’re unavailable and you need urgent support call, Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
Redkite counselling services are available to help when you need to talk. Different to the support of friends and family, which is also important, but Redkite talk with families going through cancer treatment every day.
For some people, picking up the phone to talk to someone can feel impossible. But when you call 1800 REDKITE, we will connect you to our community oncology support team. They understand what you’re going through is tough… really tough. Our team have the experience to support you in the way that works best for you, and they genuinely care. We can connect you to the same person each time if that’s what you want and if they’re available. You can also set up a time directly with your Social Worker.

If COVID restrictions allow, our community team can meet with you face to face in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth. If you’re not in those cities, we can still see each other over video call.
Some people feel more comfortable talking with our team in a language other than English. When you call us, tell us you want an interpreter and the language. Then we will organise an interpreter to join the call.
