How We Help

Variety – the Children’s Charity supports kids (aged 0-18) who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Variety’s work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, to play, to achieve independence and increase their self-esteem.  Because all kids deserve a fair go in life.

For 45 years Variety has been helping to give kids, and their families, a fair go. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our ability to provide grants, run our programs and hold our kids experiences. We know this is a challenging time for everyone and hope to be able to resume our regular support and activities soon

Variety is making every effort to minimise disruption to our workflow whilst also maintaining the health and safety of our staff. We understand our families and referrers may be experiencing similar challenges. All enquiries including but not limited to invoices and reimbursements may face delays in being actioned. We recommend emailing [email protected] rather than calling at this time. You can also sign up to our newsletter or join our Facebook group. Our Kids Support team are working hard to avoid or limit any delays, however, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this unique and challenging time.
