RUOK day - from our Connect leaders to you


Hi everyone in the Parenting Through Cancer online community,

Here's a beautiful video our Canteen Connect leaders made for the Canteen Community, this RUOK Day:

A lovely reminder to check in with the people around us and to have those vulnerable conversations about how we are really going, especially during these COVID-impacted times.

Take a moment to check in with yourself also, and if you need extra support, we're here.

Our Canteen staff around Australia and NZ are available during business hours; and our chat service is open until 10pm Sydney time Mon-Thurs, and 6pm Fri-Sun too.

Alternatively, if you need immediate support you can contact Lifeline (24/7) on 13 11 14.

If you have children who need to speak to someone they can contact our excellent colleagues 24/7 at Kids Help Line (up to 25years) on 1800 55 1800 or webchat at


In Aotearoa New Zealand, Youthline are available on 0800 376 633, or you can call Lifeline on 0800 543 354 (0800 LIFELINE) or free text 4357 (HELP).
