CANCER HUB

Because We’re Better Together

‘One-stop shop’ for cancer support

When a family is confronted with a cancer diagnosis, we understand the huge difficulties it brings. That is why Camp Quality has joined forces with other national cancer charities to make finding support as easy as possible.

Camp Quality, Canteen, and Redkite are now working together to provide a digital ‘one-stop shop’ for cancer support. Our Cancer Hub helps families impacted by cancer more easily access the practical and emotional support they need – when they need it.

Dealing with the immense challenges of cancer is often overwhelming and can take a significant toll on the mental health and wellbeing of every family member, not just the person diagnosed.

In addition to making treatment decisions, families are also navigating issues such as financial pressures, accommodation and parenting arrangements. Finding the support your family needs shouldn’t be yet another challenge on the list.

Cancer Hub, which has received funding from the Australian government, will streamline the way families facing cancer with children aged 0-25 get support. Specially trained staff are there to identify every family member’s needs and then actively help them access whatever support they require.

With one phone call

With one phone call to the Hub, families will be able to access:

  • Dedicated cancer navigators, who can organise financial support, accommodation or other services when a child or young person has cancer
  • Specialist counsellors to help manage the parenting challenges cancer brings
  • Professional and peer support for children and young people aged 0-25
