Providing real support to children, young people and their families through cancer has remained Redkite's single focus for over 26 years.
Currently there are approximately 8000 families affected by childhood and adolescent cancer in Australia. Redkite is there with real and practical support for the whole family from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and when families return home to the community.
Redkite provides financial assistance, emotional support and education assistance. Emotional support within the hospital environment is provided through social workers and music therapists, and support within the community includes telephone and email counselling, bereavement support and family days.

Redkite receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of the community to provide these important services.
