Redkite’s support begins at the moment of diagnosis, and continues throughout long and intensive hospital treatment, to when the child or young person and their family return home to their community. Telegroups:

Redkite Social Workers Redkite’s professional hospital-based social workers provide cancerspecific counselling, support and information from diagnosis to the return home into the community.

Music Therapy: Redkite’s qualified music therapists provide a supportive and creative environment to assist in pain management and strengthen a child or young person’s ability to cope with treatment.

Red Bags: Redkite’s Red Bags contain practical support items to assist families in hospital during the diagnosis period – including toiletries and information on Redkite’s services.

Telephone and email support: Redkite’s email and telephone support services offer families professional counselling as well as cancer-specific information wherever they are in Australia.

Redkite telegroups are professionally facilitated telephone-based peer support groups available for young people with cancer, bereaved parents and other family members. Telegroups connect people who are at similar stages of their cancer journey, allowing them to share their experiences.

Financial Assistance: Redkite’s financial assistance eases the pressure on families and young people assisting with the costs of travel to and from hospital and essential household expenses.

Education grants and Scholarships: Redkite’s grants can help children and young people keep up with their peers academically and developmentally. Redkite’s Dare to Dream Scholarship Program helps young people reach their full potential.
