About

Redkite has been providing essential support to children with cancer, and their families for over 35 years. We're here throughout the whole cancer journey, from the moment of diagnosis until after treatment finishes.

Support through grief and loss

When a child dies, it's one of the most devastating things that can happen to any family. Special times such as birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas can be especially difficult.

Financial Assistance

Cancer is expensive. Treatment can put pressure on finances, particularly for families who need to travel and stay away from home. Redkite helps cover the cost of many essential items.

Let Redkite be there for you

Redkite is a support organisation. Our knowledge and expertise are built on 35 years of working with children with cancer and their families. We know the more people you have on your side, the better. Our services include information & support, counselling, financial assistance & grants, bereavement support, support packs as well as in hospital social workers and music therapists.

Families are amazing, help Redkite be there for them

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it hurts the whole family. And family is everything. No one can put a value on the love a family shares and their strength. Cancer is hard, but with Redkite, getting help doesn't have to be. For more than 35 years, we have been helping families with the practical, emotional and financial support they need, no matter where they are.

In the fog of having a child face cancer, I found myself stumbling in the dark. Redkite was always there with an outstretched arm ready to steady myself. Redkite is a charity that knows what we need as cancer families before we need it. 

Redkite is the charity in the trenches.

Redkite is the charity that, when you have a problem, suddenly they are there for you.
