Nationally, we provide more than $1 million each month in assistance for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
Through the provision of vital and practical equipment, programs and experiences, Variety helps children in need to overcome whatever obstacles they face and live life to the fullest.
Variety delivers assistance through three core programs:
Variety assists those who often fall through the cracks, unable to receive Government funding or other aid.
Technology has provided miracles for hearing, sight and speech impaired children – but technology comes at a price – and often this is more than the average family or organisation can possibly afford.
Variety’s role is crucial in providing equipment, medical assistance, and supporting children in educational, sporting, or artistic endeavours and experiences.
Variety’s mission is for children to attain their full potential regardless of ability or background and to empower them to live, laugh and learn. Variety’s work allows children to gain mobility and freedom, to get out and about in the community, be able to communicate, achieve independence and increase self-esteem, and where possible the assistance to help them be integrated into mainstream school and activities.
Over 30,000 children and their families are directly impacted by Variety each year, through our appeals programs, our Children’s Christmas parties and variety@work. Thousands more travel on Sunshine Coaches every day and tens of thousands are treated in hospitals supported by Variety.
To date, Variety has helped put 1,236 Sunshine Coaches on the road, transporting children from special schools and other organisation to their daily activities and other special life experiences. We, however, receive more requests for sunshine coaches than we can provide.
Regional and disadvantaged schools rely on Variety to provide learning equipment and other necessary play equipment.
Variety receives thousands of requests each year for mobility equipment such as electric wheelchairs, vehicle modifications, specialised strollers and more.
