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, Emelie and Theodore.
