Redkite supports children and young people with cancer and their families by providing real and practical support - both in hopsital and in the community. Redkite is there from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment, and when families return home to their community. This support includes funding social workers and music therapists in hospitals, providing vital financial assistance such as paying for fuel so a child can get to treatment, providing education grants to ensure children and young people can keep up with school or tertiary studies, community based support such as telephone and email counselling, and bereavement support. Founded in 1983, Redkite was formerly known as The Malcolm Sargent Cancer Fund for Children in Australia and as part of a structural development to a national organisation, changed its name in August 2005. Children from all major cities and remote locations across Australia are supported by Redkite services coordinated from offices in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria. Redkite receives no government funding so with the continuing support of the community, Redkite aims to reach out to all children and young people with cancer and their families across Australia.
