Volunteer with Redkite


This is your chance to make a difference for families facing cancer. You could join us in one of our four regional offices, contribute to a fundraising event or directly help families facing cancer in hospital.


Volunteering for Redkite is both fun and rewarding. You'll meet new and interesting people and feel great knowing that you’re helping to improve the lives of children and young people with cancer.


You can learn more about what our volunteers do and what it means to them by reading their stories: JoshuaBrendaCheryl, WesSantiagoFarah.

Important volunteering information

Overseas enquiries - as a national charity, Redkite cannot accept volunteer enquiries from those living outside of Australia.


Service based volunteering - due to the nature of Redkite's services for children and young people with cancer and their families, we cannot offer volunteer opportunities working directly with children or families, based in hospitals or within our support team.  


Youth volunteering – We cannot accept volunteers under the age of 18 for any of our committee or skilled volunteering roles. However, from time to time we have event volunteer and work experience opportunities which are suitable for under 18s. These opportunities will be highlighted on our marketing materials or you can get in touch with us at .
