Online support

Canteen Connect is an online community where you can connect with other rangatahi impacted by cancer, check out events, or chat with a Canteen Connect counsellor.

Regardless of your cancer experience or where you live in Aotearoa, you can chat with other rangatahi who understand exactly what you’re going through 24/7 using Canteen Connect. As part of the cancer support services that we offer, Canteen Connect is a unique online platform that allows you to socialise, join events, or chat with a Canteen Connect counsellor all from the comfort of your couch.

Chat to a counsellor on CANTEEN CONNECT

Rangatahi can talk to Canteen Connect Counsellors for free using the chat function on the platform, or by organising an appointment to talk over the phone or Zoom. Counsellors are based in Australia and are available 6 days a week, Monday-Saturday, including evenings.


Your whānau doesn’t have to face cancer alone. There’s support for you too because Canteen understands that cancer affects the whole whānau. As part of our mission to provide accessible cancer support for families, Canteen also offers online support services to parents through Parenting Through Cancer - an online community where parents impacted by cancer can get free expert advice, counselling, and the chance to connect with others in similar situations.
