Variety-the Children’s Charity is a national not-for-profit organisation committed to empowering Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs to LIVE, LAUGH & LEARN! By providing practical equipment & experiences through our Variety programs (Freedom, Future Kids & Caring 4 Kids), Variety helps children in need, overcome whatever obstacles they face to live life to the fullest!

How We HelpMore

Meet Ashlyn!

Most of the time, eleven year old Ashlyn uses a wheelchair to get around.


But for a few precious moments every day, Ashlyn can enjoy freedom and escape the physical limitations of her Cerebral Palsy by swimming in her backyard pool.

Thanks to Variety - the Children’s Charity of Western Australia and the Variety Freedom Program, Ashlyn's parents Michiko and Vince were able to install a pool heater. The therapeutic warm water relaxes her tight muscles, giving Ashlyn the best experience possible.

“It’s made a huge difference to her life,” said Michiko. “Ashlyn loves being a mermaid in her lagoon!”
