How we Help
Variety. Because some children’s needs are extra special.
Children growing up with disability, serious illness or disadvantage need help from a special charity.
That charity is Variety.
With your support across Australia, Variety the Children’s Charity gives more than a million dollars worth of goods and services a month to Australian children with special needs.
That may seem like a lot of money, but we can always give more.
You can make a difference by becoming involved with Variety. You can donate money, volunteer your time, or assist in other ways so we can continue doing amazing things for children who urgently need our help.
Your money helps in a variety of ways.
Every year, Variety Tasmania provides practical and much-needed assistance for items such as modified tricycles, electric beds and communication devices for children who would otherwise ‘fall through the gaps’ and have nowhere else to turn. But we could do more with your help.
Hundreds of children with special needs travel on Sunshine Coaches every day, with three new Sunshine Coaches added to the road in Australia every single month. But we want enough on the road to get all our children with special needs out in the sunshine and interacting with people who care. Help us get more Sunshine Coaches on the road.
Regional and disadvantaged schools receive much-needed resources as well as vital learning and play equipment. We also receive many requests for vocal output devices, communication software and other technologies. With your donation, more children with special needs will be able to find a voice or become mobile.
