education support


Cancer treatment can mean months or years of disruption to education, training or work. Redkite’s education and career support is here to help children, teenagers and young adults build their best possible futures.

education grants

Redkite provides grants to help children and young people aged up to 24 achieve their work and study goals. The grants can be used for:

  • Tutoring or coaching
  • Courses
  • Classroom support
  • Materials and equipment such as books and laptops
  • Pursuing an interest area such as music, art or dance
  • Developmental therapy that isn’t available through your hospital

These grants are available for up to two years after treatment ends. To find out more, get in touch on 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548) or email

education and career support 

Redkite offers personalised assistance for 15-24 year olds who’ve had cancer, no matter when they were diagnosed. We’re here to help you get back on track with work, study or training.


Our team members are like mentors who understand the specific challenges of cancer. They know that:

  • You may need support to keep up with school or to apply for further study
  • Going through treatment might have changed your goals for study or work
  • Returning to school after a long break may be challenging

We can help you set short- and long-term goals, and develop a realistic plan to make them happen. We can also connect you with helpful resources, like Thinking Ahead - a great tool for when you're re-engaging in work or study after cancer.
