Variety Future Kids
Helping special children reach their full potential, realise their dreams and shine.
Variety Future Kids Program provides children with intellectual or physical disability access to equipment to positively transform their classroom experience and academic performance.

We also help with sporting trips, musical equipment, scholarships and other items that help children with various special needs improve their potential to learn, participate in the community and enjoy life!

Variety is also an active supporter of special education and disadvantaged schools throughout Australia, providing funding for books, educational and play equipment, and other urgently needed equipment.
In 2010 - 2011 Variety Victoria distributed $1,772,871 in equipment and services.
