How your fundraising makes a difference
Every day, 3 families recieve the life changing news that their child has cancer.
Redkite is there for them from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond.
Every registration, event or fundraiser held for Redkite is an opportunity to raise funds to support the vital work that we do.
From our diagnosis support packs, to our hospital based social workers, counselling support or financial assistance,
every fundraiser helps Redkite to be there for families, whenever they need us.
When families are told “your child has cancer", it is in this moment and the long, unpredictable and often traumatic journey following a diagnosis that a family needs a support network around them to help them stay strong.
But their family is much bigger than they realise.
Providing real practical, financial and emotional support to families, has been Redkite's focus for over 35 years. We're here from the moment of their child's cancer diagnosis until after treatment ends. And if their child dies because of cancer, we will be there for the whole family for a long as they need us.
If you care for, or know a child, who has cancer or has been treated for cancer, we’re here to help you with real emotional, financial and practical support. from diagnosis, throughout treatment, and after treatment ends. Our support includes:
- Financial assistance to cover essential costs
- Information, counselling and group support
- Support to keep education on track
- Support through grief and loss
- Diagnosis support packs
- Support in hospital through social workers and music therapists
Redkite receives no government funding. We rely entirely on the generosity of the community to provide these important services.
