Counselling and information

Connect you Redkite and other support services

When your child is admitted to hospital, you will have contact with an Oncology Social Worker. They have lots of experience supporting families through cancer and are great people to talk to if you have a question, need to talk with someone, or want to know about other support that’s available.

If you want to get in contact with a hospital social worker, you can ask a doctor, nurse or other members of your health team.
